Streets: Zezão for The Canals Project (London)

The  roster includes artists Mark Lyken (Scotland), Teo Moneyless (Italy),  Zezão (Brazil), Remed (Spain),  Ekta Ekta (Sweden), and Interesni Kazki (Ukraine). Curated by Cedar Levisham, the artworks will be installed during summer 2013 and should reflect the location and history of the canals in a variety of innovative ways. Take a look at what  Zezão painted below and read more about The Canals Project.
