Street Art Adventures: Shoreditch, London

East London: Bricklane. Shoreditch. Alternative. Hipster (please don’t be offended) … Words to describe such a location. To me, what comes to mind is STREET ART, BABYYYY! Ya buddyyyyyy! My Sunday FUNDAY was not filled with shopping in markets, rather it was exploring what the East End of London had to offer… and that was URBAN ART GALORE. All the MAJOR names were present. Check below to see a glimpse of what I saw, but if you’re ever in the hood spend a few hours. Look up, look down, go down alleys (not at night) and seriously see this rad and diverse works ranging from stencil grafts to wheat pastes, to mixed media works!! Enjoy!

and lastly, I came across some unknown artist that is tagging and making works entitled “ART is TRASH” using found garbage on ze streets of London compiling them into works of “ART” – dare I say (more on these works to follow within the week).

Remember kids, one man’s trash is another man’s TREASURE. HAPPY HUNTING, and may the odds be ever in your FAVOUR!
