Blink Inspiration: Cut and Paste Art

We were, camera in hand, searching East London finding great new street art for the Autumn edition of the ‘Graphics’ report when we came across a really innovative looking piece on Redchurch Street. As we were ooh-ing and ahh-ing, admiring this variation on the Virgin Mary, the artist himself stepped up.

Ernesto Muniz is a scalpel wielding genius. He very kindly sent us some images of other works from the streets of London as well as his home town of Mexico City. There’s also some really interesting creations with vinyl records. The use of religious iconography reflects Muniz’ Latino roots and makes for some really innovative artwork.

If you like what you see here, Ernesto can be contacted at He’ll also be exhibiting alongside artists like Banksy at Liverpool’s Corke Gallery in November.
