London is just covered in street art– also known as graffiti. But it’s like really good graffiti, not that crap, gang-tagging shit that happens in America.
Kyle is really big on the London graffiti scene and he was snapping pics left and right since we got there. Evidently the area of East London where we stayed (Shoreditch) has just scads of painted walls.
At the beginning I was casually noticing it, and I would take pics of stuff I liked (I mean, I DO like Banksy), but by the end I was really digging it all and actively seeking out photo opportunities.
Below are some of the pics I took of my favorite pieces:
Some pretty cool shit, eh? Even though we didn’t see a Banksy (that I know of) we did see some other fairly prominent artists like Stick and Clolus.
My next visit to London I’ll be sure to seek out more of this stuff.
