After a quick visit to Camden High Street I made my way to Liverpool Street Station and on to the goat statue in Shoreditch for the start of my walking tour of street art around Shoreditch and in particular Brick Lane.
I went with Shoreditch Street Art Tours and our small group started the tour at 11. I did manage to take a few other images while waiting and I was lucky that one of the members of the tour was wearing a red coat (more images later).
We went down Brushfield Street past Gun Street and on into Shoreditch towards Brick Lane. I have grouped the images rather produce them in the order in the tour, if you want to see all of the images (and the ones I haven’t included!) then please book the tour with Dave!
Street Art Installations
Walking around Shoreditch we looked up at posts and often up on roofs to see art from Jonesy (the bronze castings), the Rolling Fool by Dr Cream and mushrooms from Christiaan Nagel,
This is a view towards Brick Lane showing the French artist Gregos’ face on the wall.
After leaving Dave I made my way back to Liverpool Street and passed this installation from Gregos.
It wasn’t just me taking lots of pictures of the street art, this is one photographer I managed to take a picture of
And as we finished the tour there was a serious photo shoot taking place. Not sure about the knife though!
Serious piece from Bambi
Bambi’s subject is a repeated image of Michael Brown who was shot by cops in Ferguson Missouri.
I only managed to capture two of the stencils due to white van man. The wall taht the stencils are on is opposite the Cargo night club.
Humour from Saki and B*tches
Under the window of a tattoo parlour is this pig.
And on the door at the side of the parlour is this art from Japanese artist Saki and Bitches.
She has toned down her art in respect of the people who live and work around brick lane. But it doesn’t look as this will save this pig.
