SCENES FROM: London International Pasteup Festival 2023

London International Pasteup Festival saw street artists from all over the world sprawl across the walls of Shoreditch. Members of Vibes Farm were lucky enough to be up ladders all day for a full view, and even got to sneak a peek at their secret wheatpaste recipe. Below are some of the highlights of the festival, which in 2023 is celebrating its third year. Shouts to the organisers for having us along, and for including works from Slow Shrug and Sam Shrug respectively.
