Real or Street Art?

Notorious for his provocative clothed mummified bodies positioned in shocking positions in large cities around the world, street artist Mark Jenkins has now hit London.

Washington native Jenkins uses Sellotape as his sculpting material, which he uses to cover himself creating a mummy. He then cuts the mummy and clothes it, and places without permission on city streets, under bridges, and against walls. His contraversial art work has been displayed in Rio, Washington and now in London. Jenkins say "I want to shock and I want people to figure out if it's real or art".

Jenkins has become a little more conventional and is currently displaying his "Outcasts" exhibit of sculptures and photographs at Soho's Lazarides Gallery. If you can't make the exhibit, watch for his work in your city or check out his website.
