Photographer's Note

London’s famous Brick Lane. A part of London that is renowned for it’s curry houses, being a cool place to hang out and of course the street art that seems to be everywhere – on the doorways, walls, steel shutters, up high down low.
Whilst wandering around I came across three street art walking tours that were packed with people. Street art has become a booming industry. Some of the graffiti artists have even become businessmen. And of course some of them … well one of them has become very famous and a millionaire. BANKSY.
There is of course much more to the London graffiti scene that Banksy, but I’m sure all those that have followed in his footsteps are grateful for the trail he has blazed and the opportunities he has help to create! The loon from Bristol created a real buzz…
Well known graffiti artists who’s work can be found on the streets of the East End of London include Love Pusher, Solo one, Bonzai, Keen, Eine, Snug, Solo, Burning candy, Stik, Mobstr, Buytronick, Malarky, Pop 187 and KA. T.A, Stinkfish to name but a few. All talented artists who bring grim run down walls, doorways and steel shutters to life.
The street art in and around Brick Lane is ever changing and features a huge variety of styles. And for those in London on holiday this should be the first place to head to find some amazing graffiti. Or perhaps take a guided tour, and as much as such tours normally pain me, I feel they could offer up some interesting insights into the London graffiti scene, from the past and present.
