Dark Angel, Deadly Dragon by Fin DAC and Eelus

Street artists Fin DAC and Eelus recently connected in West London to complete a new mural that's titled Dark Angel, Deadly Dragon. Located somewhere on Scrubs Lane, the dramatic painting features a striking combination of red and black colors that are complemented with delicate, light-gray tones.

The two women are donning elaborate headdresses and alluringly gazing at viewers from over their shoulders. It's a captivating image, not only because of the ladies' expressions, but the bold style that was used to create it. A graphic black and red background immediately grabs your attention, while the soft gray shading adds a more realistic and even sensual feeling to the entire piece.

Each character seems to display the two artists' signature styles. Fin DAC, whom we've admired before, is known for painting women and adding a colored “mask” over their eyes. We see his contribution on the right. Eelus cloaks his figures in extremely dark, hard-edged shadows, like the figure on the left. Together, these two different approaches produce one stunning mural.
