Street Art in East London

One of the main aesthetics of East London’s quirky and bizarre culture is the street art that has fled through many streets. Here I have chosen examples from Shoreditch, Brick Lane and Hackney as they all have different themes and meanings which give East London this unusual representation.

Although graffiti is a crime, many of these fascinating art pieces have not been removed as we know longer see them as crime rather than an actual part of the East London area. The significant designs have become a popular tourist attraction that has intrigued other artists to present their work here.
