On February 13th a select group of first and second year BA English students brazed the freezing cold, together with James Kenworth and myself for a tour of iconic and ever changing street art in Shoreditch.
We say everything: painted chewing gum, preserved Banksy satirical street art and newly painted graffiti; subtle and bold work; elaborate pieces and ‘anti-style’, old and new, expensive commercially commissioned murals and illegal vandalism.
All through the eyes of our tour guide, a local artist and illustrator who is closely connected and involved with the street art scene in London.
We even got a glimpse of some street artists that talked to us about their pieces!
This is just a small selection.
