Street Art: White City

In fitting with our Mexican and market culture, at each Wahaca you can expect to see site specific commissions focusing on street and environmental art by the most exciting artists of the moment.

Street artist: Oliver Shaw
Known as “The Shaw” since childhood and having skateboarded his way through the south coast’s art schools, this graffiti artist turned canvas free-styler likes to build layers upon layers to create often abstracted works which are modern and original.

We let him loose on our White City restaurant, with the freedom to do whatever he wanted, wherever he wanted. In true graffiti style, he didn’t disappoint – leaving his trademark technicolor circles and spray can sketches around the restaurant.
