50 Images of London Street Art Photography: Part 1

Thanks for the new Facebook likes this weekend! I am posting there more since I’ve cut down a bit on the blog while I build my brother’s website. Also thanks to those of you who shared the LLO link in exchange for a Stik street art postcard. They are on their way and a new batch of 8 more coming next week.

I’ve also found myself amused by Instagram this weekend…Apparently I have followers. Who knew? So I thought I better step it up a bit. Are you on there?

It’s been a while since I posted a good collection of street art. So, I’ve ventured over to the magical world of East London, oh so far from home, to scope out some of the latest pieces of street art that continually pop up over there. I’m waiting until there’s a blast of street art in the West but apart from Don’s forays into Richmond and a few pieces spotted around Fulham, it’s not looking promising.

Here’s a look at some of the pieces I’ve found followed by a few from the Flickr pool at the end and in fact, I will continue to a new post tomorrow because there is a ton!

Favourites? There’s some real talent on London’s streets right now, don’t you think?

Oh, I forgot to tell you that the blog I started for work in November, CAPA World, was featured as blog of the week on GoAbroad.com. There’s some pretty awesome content in the pipeline as well. Follow along?

Shiny New Stik Street Art

What’s better than catching an artist at work? Alex Ellison was in the right place at the right time (ie – the carpark in Leonard Street/Great Eastern Street) when he spotted Stik on scaffolding painting away a gigantic new figure. Here’s some photos from Alex (who I interviewed here if you missed it):

And if you’re looking for more Stik, type in a search on the right. There’s plenty on LLO to find. Also, a three part interview with Stik here.

If you’ve taken a shot of the new Stik without the scaffolding, add it to the Flickr pool please!

London Street Art: Pearly Whites at the Heygate Estate

Mighty Mo, Malarky, Sweet Toof (of course)… have been painting lots of big old teeth in all varieties on the walls of London’s abandoned Heygate Estate lately, judging by Alex Ellison‘s latest additions to the Flickr pool. I haven’t been since my Elephant & Castle walk, but here’s a few photos (All from Alex, all at the Heygate!):

It’s hard to choose but I think the stairs and the one using garage doors for teeth are my favourites. So creative. You?

Olympic Cash

The Olympics make for a whole new set of little London observations. Alex Ellison found this sign along the Regents Canal earlier this week:

Public Notice

What changes have you spotted in your area with the upcoming Olympics? Not too much down here at the moment, but upcoming Wimbledon has brought fake grass and lots of massive advertisements to Southfields station…
