This is the capital of Street Art. Walking around in the streets is like walking in an outdoor art museum – especially in Shoreditch. Local and international artists have decorated – and decorate – the streets and I love it. Banksy is the most famous of them all but there are tons of them and they are good!
I admire the artists and their work and it makes me feel happy whenever I see a new piece of art. Often I meet a small group walking around listening to a guide from Street Art London Tours or another company. I know the street art tours are very popular and the guides have a lot of knowledge so I will recommend a tour. Probably I’ll take one myself… But you can do it on your own. Take a walk in Brixton or Shoreditch, be observant and enjoy the wonderful outdoor art museum.

And last but not least: Stik. His work is all over East London and they are easily recognised: Simple stick figures with a lot of expression. I love Stik and his figures. This one is called ‘Past, Present and Future’ and you’ll find it at Old Street, Shoreditch.
