Graphic and street artist Lily Mixe has creates beautiful illustrations inspired by daydreams and nature. With exquisite detail and fine inky lines, these aren’t the most obvious choice for the very temporary D-I-Y world of street art. But Lily’s sea creature paste ups have added to to the colourful streets of Shoreditch for the last year or so. Her latest work, a tribal whale on Rivington Street, took five days to paint by hand and spans around four meters long.
