Some very well-painted Gremlins street art appeared on the wall of an underpass in the London area, so I headed there with a friend to take some pictures. This artwork was painted by a talented artist called Demograffix, and you can view more examples of his work on his official website.
As you can see below, he brilliantly illustrated Gizmo, the cute little mogwai from the classic 1984 Joe Dante film, and two of the more evil mogwai known as Mohawk and Lenny from the 1990 sequel, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, who were spawned when Gizmo was splashed with water. Although Mohawk and Lenny were depicted as villains in the sequel, they were painted here in their original mogwai forms before they were transformed into gremlins, so Demograffix clearly wanted to show them retaining some of their innocence. The artwork was also accompanied by some cool captions and tags, including a warning not to feed the mogwai after midnight, because we all know what will happen if you do that.
You may recognise my friend from the photos as filmmaker and actress Emma Dark, who recently directed and starred in the award winning film Salient Minus Ten. Emma took most of the photos in the gallery below, and I also took a few myself, although as you can clearly tell, I’m not a professional photographer like Emma. In any case, if you’re a Gremlins fan, this graffiti should keep you satisfied until the new animated series Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai arrives on HBO Max.
