  • Street Art around Brick Lane, April 2014

    In 2013 I discovered the stunning street art of the Brick Lane area. And I photographed the work on display there in March and August that year.  You’ll find links at the bottom of this post.

    These works stay longer than the daily changes to the work on the Undercroft where the skateboarders hang out on the South Bank.  They last months or even years.  ROA’s hedgehog (featured image) in Shoreditch was painted in 2012.

    This is now an international art scene with work from artists around the globe. And supporting them are galleries and bloggers who curate and document their work.  And that’s exciting because I can now find out who the men and yes, women, are who create these murals.  Particular thanks to Inspiring the City, whose blog is a brilliant resource of the work created in London.

    Artist Rone.

    The above piece on Hanbury Street, E1 was painted by an Australian artist Rone in March 2014.  Inspiring the City wrote about his visit and exhibition at a Brick Lane gallery Stolen Space.

    Now I’ll let the photographs speak for the work.

    I’ve included this door because I’ve snapped it twice before.  Previously there were some exquisite paintings but nothing of note at the moment.  Its like an empty space waiting for to be curated again. Update – thanks to Inspiring the City, I now know there is artwork on this door.  Look up at the butterflies and there it is.

    The old man in the painting on the left is called Charlie Burns who lived to 96.  So Long Charlie Burns is a great tribute to him on Spitalfields Life.  The old e-type Jag was lovingly restored and too perfectly parked in front of that mural.

    After I reached the top of Brick Lane I walked randomly around the streets of Shoreditch looking for new murals I’d not seen before.

      • Hey, you are a star. I hoped you’d know. I’m sure I’ve also read about Snik on your blog but couldn’t find the post. I think its important we’re now documenting these works accurately. Thanks again. 🙂
