A group of street artists have created murals in East London telling the stories of various young homeless people as part of a campaign for charity Depaul UK, created by Publicis in London.
Each artwork in the campaign focuses on the individual story of a young homeless person, with text giving an insight into the factors that led up to their situation included as part of the murals, which are on display in Dalston and Shoreditch.
The artists involved are Ben Slow, David Shillinglaw, Best Ever (mural shown above), Josh Jeavons, and Jim McElvaney, all of whom gave their time for free.
The artworks all feature a url – streetstories.org.uk – which leads viewers to a website where they can find out more information about the homeless people whose stories appear in the murals, as well as the artists. Visitors to the site can also buy limited edition prints of the artworks, signed by the artists, for £80, with 100% of the money raised going to Depaul UK. As each print is sold, a section of the digital wall featuring the artwork is ‘cleaned’.

Guido Van Helten - Reykjavik, Iceland
Guido Van Helten is currently in Reykjavik, Iceland where he just completed his new large scale murals the on 3 sides of the ‘Loftkastalinn’ building in the Old West side of the city.
The artist based the murals on photographs by Andres Kolbeinsson selected from the Reykjavik Museum of Photography Archive. They represent scenes from the Jean-Paul Sartre play ‘No Exit’ performed in the city in 1961 in which the characters Estelle, Garcin and Inez are locked together in a room for eternity.
