Street Art Mecca
London is one of the creative capitals of the world, where you can find art not only in galleries and museums, but spilling out into the streets. Exposed to the onslaught of urban life, London’s street art is beautifully ephemeral and transforming constantly. For every fresh new work that appears, a masterpiece from yesterday may be gone. There’s no better way for you to discover this dynamic, on-the-pulse scene than by taking a guided tour through East London, the street art mecca of the city.
With your expert local guide, you will explore the ever-changing walls of the Shoreditch area – where shipping containers become shopping malls and train carriages are transformed into artist studios. Not only the favourite haunt of hipsters, who you may notice cruising past on their fixie bikes, Shoreditch is also a veritable treasure-trove of street art. From scrawled tags to stunning murals, stencilled stick men to giant intricate animals, during your tour you will discover the extent of the creativity poured into these masterpieces. Sometimes political, often humorous, and always wonderfully imaginative, your time on this art tour will transform the way you view scribbles along walls in every city.
Whilst you learn about this artistic subculture, you will also be wandering through one of the most culturally vibrant areas of London. As you go off the beaten track, you will hear the history of Spitalfields and Brick Lane, immersing yourself in a world of vibrant street art and local character.
