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!

Street Art Adventures: 5Pointz – Queens

Some people may be hesitant when you think of going to a warehouse in Queens to look at Street Art. To me, this was a NO BRAINER. DUH. The building, which takes up around a block, is covered from head to toe in FABULOUS murals, wheat pastes, stencil works, etc… But actually. While it is sad to think that there are people who want to tear down this landmark (WHY THE EFF WOULD YOU WANT TO DO SUCH A THING?!), I suggest you go out and experience this STREET ART MECCA. 100% worth the trip. 100% BRILLIANT. My pics below do not even give justice to this monument. Check them out and see for yourself, but if you have the time to go out and see it in person before it is torn down, DO IT!

I think you get the picture… This is a GLORIOUS PALACE of Street Ar/Urban Art and CULTURE. I truly hope I have persuaded you to go and visit yourself. It is an experience in itself. Enjoy it and take it in while it lasts.
