Another piece of street art. This time of a soldier by Endless.

As you will see the trooper has Pepsi, Coca-Cola and Luis Vuitton logos on his uniform; no doubt a commentary on branding and sponsorship that’s endemic in the modern world.

It’s not particularly original and puts me in mind of the sort of thing that used to appear 25 years ago in 2000AD’s comic spin-off Crisis.

 That aside it’ got an awful lot of detail in it for a stencil. It’s found on Shaftsbury Avenue, just south of the junction with New Oxford Street.

Nearby the same artist has put up a pair of faux Nazi eagles on some doors. I’m not sure what the message is there – I don’t imagine it’s a fascist statement, but I’m a bit lost on that one I must admit.
