23 Photographs: Creative London

Without a doubt, London’s unfailing ability to inspire its artistic population is one of the main reasons I can’t seem to stay away from this grand old city. It’s the street art plastered all over the East End, the high end galleries and the quirkier tiny galleries and the sculptures placed at random, little bursts of colour or unusual forms that make me look twice that continually grasp my attention.

Some old, some new, here are 23 photos of London creativity that have recently been contributed to the LLO Flickr pool.
