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?

Faces of the Olympics

We’re in the lull between the Olympics and the Paralympics, but there are still plenty of signs (literally and metaphorically) all over London of the events. Street artist Don has been adding to the collection of Olympics-inspired art on our city walls. Here’s a few pieces spotted on Hanbury Street in the East End and in the skate park on South Bank:

Street Artist Don in the East End

Whilst I was wandering through the East End streets the other day, I came across three different pieces by street artist DON. Random tidbit of information – He once taught east end children at a local school how to mural a wall.

Here are the three shots I took the other day. I especially love the owl with all of its glorious details and colourful background.

Have you guys spotted any DON pieces around lately?
He’s just agreed to do an interview for the blog so you’ll be hearing from him in the coming weeks!
