MANHOLE COVERS . LONDON

Coal Hole covers Brick Lane

Coal Hole covers Brick Lane by ASTERONYME.

In late 2015, Astéronyme discovered the Manhole Covers – also called Coalhole Covers – an unknown precious piece of art of Brick Lane. Made of melt and iron, those unique ornaments symbolize the transition from the inside to the outside, a mere innovation to « read the street » throughout the path of an artistic discovery. 

 

Astéronyme has registered and redrawn the manhole covers, before making his own art out of them. Using several techniques (drawing, painting, graphic design), he found a way to revitalise the history of industrial and Victorian era, carried out by each covers specifically. The final works are printed on craft paper in East London studio, available in black, red or blue. Each piece is unique, signed by the artist.

 

Astéronyme works on the moment. His quest for history is a second stage of his artistic approach, so it does not interfere with its own imagination, but acts as a complement.

 

The layers of Brick Lane’s history are associated to the historical evolution of street art, in a stimulating dialectic relationship. And this dialogue requires time to be thoroughly interpreted. This is the ultimate goal of Astéronyme’s approach: rather than consuming the street, reading it to better understand it and enjoy it.
