I love street art. For those who follow me on Instagram (and there's a few posts on this blog) have probably noticed a lot of posts are of street art. It's amazing what street artists can do once given a big piece of a blank building wall, a shop shutter or a fence with no purpose. I just love the freedom used in their art even though it is illegal, but anyhow it shows that the artists knows what's going on in the world, and if they don't like it they express it with their art, and not with politics and boring words. Or it might be just a personal thing and they just like to show off their lovely artistic skills.
I just love street art. Full stop. ^_^
On one Sunday afternoon MummyGeek wanted to explore areas of London that she's never been to so I took her towards Shoreditch and then into the Hackney area. As we returned back towards Shoreditch we couldn't find the bus stop we wanted so I took some pictures along the way towards the bus stop...
I think Shoreditch is just the coolest area to find street art. I so love it so much that I decided to go on a guided tour with Shoreditch Street Art Tours. It was the only way to get a better understanding of the street artists in London and why they come to this specific area in London to show off.
