on saturday morning i took a wander through the familiar streets of shoreditch but this time with a complete group of strangers, well bar one who i did know. i joined in a walk led by xanthe berkeley and some happy instagram snappers.
we had spent the earlier part of our day pottering in and around the barbican. but after standing in one too many queues, for far too long, we decided to retreat and head east for a walk amongst the streets of shoreditch, followed by some delicious lunch and some ping-pong action at shoreditch house. below you will see some wonderful street art that we took in along our way, on our saturday shoreditch stroll. stunning as always, these artists are so damn clever. i really want to have a go!
i’ve been on quite and black and white trip this week, so when walking in shoreditch and you come across such colours to feast your eyes on, it’s hard not to take notice and of course take a few photos.
i’m a big fan of graffiti and street art, not the mindless scrawling of nonsense mind, but the honed and outrageously fantastic skills of some of the artists is mind-blowing. the colour, the scale can simply be breathtaking. let me share some gems from chance & ebor street in londons shoreditch E1.
