SIX AND THE CITY
Eagle-eyed readers of The Unmutual may have seen, dotted around various London streets (including Riding House Street and Broadwisk Street), some original and interesting Prisoneresque street art (such as that left). One such eagle-eyed reader is Phil Coomes, who wrote to tell more.
Phil writes; It seems Number 6's rebellious nature is once again being used to spur the public into action, to question and to examine their own thoughts and beliefs, and that of society. The art seems to be part of a wider campaign by a someone called SmileStreetArt (instagram HERE). They have a number of Prisoner related posters/quotes, and each one seems to be a one off piece.
I emailed the artist who had only recently become aware of the series, they said: "Our friendly Number Six obviously represents the outsider and the non-conformist, he is defiantly individual and anti-collective, and it is these qualities that resonate with me.”
