East London street art

I recently went to dinner with friends in Brick Lane and one of the things I really enjoy in this part of East London, apart from the food, is the amazing street art. For those who don’t know, Brick Lane is known for it’s delicious food and wide range of interesting street art, and whilst I was waiting I took a walk to check out the artwork. It wasn’t long before I had my phone out and began taking photos (and I wasn’t the only one).

I wasn’t walking for long but I managed to take lots of photos. What I loved was seeing just how talented these artists were and the array of different styles and vivid colours that were used to express ideas and notions. You could see in some areas new paint covering the old, showing how art in this part of London is alive and ever changing.

I hope I can go back soon with my camera and spend longer admiring and capturing the artwork and I’m sure that there’ll be lots of new ones to see when I do.

      • Exactly! One of my friends actually dabbled in street art a bit, I was amazed at how difficult it is to do some of those pieces, they take such a long time and obviously you have to be quite incognito, it required quite a lot of stopping and starting!

      • That’s interesting to know, I imagined most of it was done in one go but I guess if you are trying to be discreet you would need to stop and start.
