Sweet Toof

Previously working as a member of the Burning Candy Crew, Sweet Toof began graffiting on the streets of East London in the 1980’s. The artist’s signature set of pearly white teeth can be found in both his gallery and street work, grinning behind their bright pink gums. The basic shapes and limited color palette used in his street art enable a quick execution that is necessary when painting illegally. Bringing to mind false dentures amusingly worn by children, the simplicity found within his work is both playful and familiar. By painting a mouth on the top of the building—seen here from both the street level and while crossing the bridge—Sweet Toof brings the city’s architecture to life.
