TRUST. iCON, a street artist hailing from Thamesmead, South East London, is known for combining pop culture icons with provoking, socially conscious messages.
Growing up in a brutalist public housing estate, TRUST. iCON began his artistic journey at a young age, but only emerged onto the street art scene after the London riots in 2011. Feeling that positive messages weren’t reaching the youth who needed them most, he embarked on a mission to create impactful street art that conveys powerful messages through a mix of controversy, humor, and relatable imagery.
His latest mural, “The Bare Necessities,” located in Thamesmead, showcases Mowgli from The Jungle Book holding a plastic bottle amidst the lush jungle. This piece is a reminder of the importance of environmental conservation and the impact of plastic pollution on our planet.
Active on the streets of London, Berlin, and Los Angeles, TRUST. iCON’s unique style has gained him critical acclaim for his thought-provoking pieces. Despite his growing popularity, his identity remains unknown. As TRUST. iCON himself says, “Street art is the unedited, uncensored voice of the people. But now being commercially viable, what was once a whisper is now an angry roar! Never underestimate its power; it is capable of inspiring a single thought or an entire generation.”
