Inspired by the artistic genre of late-medieval allegory that unites every human being by the simple fact that we will all die, London-based street artist SHOK-1 created his own lively interpretation wanting to “turn it more into a celebration of life, hence it has a little party atmosphere.”  I can definitely see this gracing the walls of a dance club.

This x-ray style piece was created at the Meeting of Styles at The Studio, Holloway in London back in November of 2011. Since then SHOK-1 has been hitting the streets, refining his fantastic x-ray style, the likes of which I haven’t seen any other street artist do (correct me if there are others out there!).

  1. This is just great street art.
    Love the style, it’s so unique. I’ve not seen any on the streets of London yet… but I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for it. It would be awesome to see a whole skeleton done like this on the side of a massive landmark building in London like Tate…
