A Little London Street Art Catch Up: Part 1

Seems hard to believe the last street art catch up post was back in April. A look into the LLO Flickr pool is long overdue!

Since then, I’ve also shared photos from the abandoned house covered in street art in Dulwich and The Street theatre with special pieces by D7606 and RUN.

I have to say I have not been keeping up with London’s street art scene with the same enthusiasm as I used to – at least in terms of taking my camera over to East London and spending Sundays tucking myself down small alleyways and empty car parks searching for painted walls. The scene has changed a lot in the last few years. There’s bigger talents, but it’s also much more commercialised. I find it less appealing to go hunting for it these days since the second a new piece goes up, it’s on Instagram or Flickr already. The “game” has fallen away.

But I still love to look at it so here’s a peak at some of the photos from the Flickr pool over the last few months:
