Today is intended to be very visual. If you’ve followed me for any length of time you will know I really – as in REALLY – enjoy street art. We have a fair selection in my corner of South London around Dulwich and Peckham, the result of a festival sponsored by the Dulwich Picture Gallery in 2013. But for real aficionados, you have to head for the trendy, eastern edge of the city around Shoreditch and Hoxton where the artists compete to be recognised. Street Art is ephemeral so I hope, if some of these inspire you and you visit, you’ll go looking (only the examples below may have been painted over). If you do, my suggestion is to sign up for a Street Art tour – they currently cost between £12 and £15 and are really good value for money (PS I am not sponsored or have any connection, other than as a client – they were just great).
So, rather than drivel on, here are some images from our tours. First Dulwich and then around Old Street.
