East London … the land of the hipster, fixed geared bikes, thick rimmed glasses and sleazy looking moustaches. Last time I was there I couldn’t help but notice the smells, the sights and diversity of this funky district. With Silicon Roundabout buzzing with tech startups, fueling the trendy bars and cafes, this really is a hip and happening place. One thing that is particularly striking is the street art that lines the streets.
You can now take a tour around East London to admire the art with the ‘Street Art London Tours’. Its a nice introduction to pieces of art from over 40 street artists – get up close and personal to the East London street art scene. The area is forever changing, new pieces consistently go up and the council consistently taking them down (boooooo!)
Now, wheres that stencil I used to have in my pencil case at school?….
