Martin Ron points the finger in London's Shoreditch

Martin Ron, one of Argentina's most famous and talented street artists, is in London this week to paint a spectacular mural on one of the city's best-known walls.

Originally from Buenos Aires, he has been painting for more than 10 years and is known for his giant 3D surreal murals, using the technique of hyper-realism so that the bizarre situations he paints seem to happen in real life.

This is the first time Martin has visited London and he is painting all week in Shoreditch, an area renowned for artworks by world-famous street artists such as Banksy, Roa, Vhils, Stik, Ben Eine and Phlegm.

Here are some photos of Martin painting his new mural on day four yesterday - at the 128 square metres Village Underground Wall at 54 Holywell Lane. What an awesome project. Find out more on Facebook.
