London is known for many things and while there are the glamourous things to see like the Buckingham palace and MI5 building, there is also a more artsy and expressive side of London.
Many know of Shoreditch and Brick lane – home to the hipsters and some great graffiti and artwork.
My favourite piece tells quite a touching story. It is done by @cityzenkane (instagram) and he dedicated it to his son who sadly took his own life. You can find it on Club Row just opposite to Brick lane:
Now, for the next street art gem. Not far from Waterloo station you can find the deserted tunnel that displays an extensive array of street art – and the best part? If you visit this place every other week you will find a whole new display painted over the last layer! The tunnel is also known as leak street and is about a 5 minute walk from the station. Here are some of the great pieces from this weekend:
This portrait was done by @olivier.roubieu and it is a portrait of @zabourartist
If you know any of the artists please let me know and I would love to include their names under each piece.
That’s what I love about this city, it is so full of life and colour and with people expressing their thoughts with spray cans.
