London Street Art Catch Up

Judging by the number of photos in the Flickr pool, it’s been a while since I last posted a street art update!

On a side note, I was hanging out in my favourite King’s Road juice bar, Joe & the Juice, the other day catching up on my gigantic stack of untouched magazines from the last few months. To highlight the fact that the creative, trendy center of London has seriously and undoubtedly truly shifted East, a map that Lonely Planet included with an article on fun stuff to do in London had Hyde Park (which was once considered quite a central landmark) all the way to the left side of the map with London Bridge more or less the central point and everything listed in their article of fun measured by a series of dots scattered around the East.

For someone who lives in SW3, it’s kind of irritating to see all the best new shops, restaurants, etc, popping up East of Liverpool Street. Step it up West London. Rise to the competition of the creative East. Already tourists are coming to this city for the street art of East London, indulging in alternative walking tours around Shoreditch and Hoxton instead of congregating in Piccadilly Circus. Which is fine…

But we need a bit of re-invigoration over here. I’m going to go on a hunt for some new, innovative, creative stuff in the West. Suggestions welcome.

In the meantime, I give you the East and all its colorful canvas glory.
