East London Street Art

Living and working in East London means I am constantly surrounded by the colourful artwork that adorns the streets and buildings of Bethnal Green and Shoreditch.  For someone who has an appreciation of art, design and illustration; I love it and for that reason I wanted to share my favourite pics with you!

A lot of th paintings are humorous, often ridiculing the police or current affairs and politics.  This is a trate of Banksy and you can see an example of his work below.    Don’t get me wrong, I am a big Banksy fan but sometimes he can be talked about a little too much.  So for that reason, it’s good to see so many other artists staking there claim on the fine buildings of east London.Banksy

One of my favourite designs is by artist called Eine who is best known for his single letters which are spray-painted in bold colours on the closed shutters of various shops.  I think they look great.  We have two right by our flat on Roman Road.  Before they were painted the shutters used to look really old and tatty and were often covered in bad graffiti; so I welcome it!  Other examples of Eine’s letters can be seen on Bethnal Green Road, Hackney Road, Shoreditch High Street.
