London Art Spot: Retail Opportunities

Okay, so it’s not exactly a normal Art Spot post, but it’s a pretty artistic photo from past Art Spot interviewee Kathy Archbold, aka Buckaroo Kid.  It also fits the “observationist” theme perfectly, so I had to share. Proper Sunday Art Spot interviews start up again next week!

does it get any better?

Messages on Walls: Brick Lane

Sticking with the East End stuff I’ve posted in the last few days, have a read of some of the messages on the walls around Brick Lane.

The World is Such a Funny Place

“The world is such a funny place. There’s some who’re nice and some who’re mean and all of those who’re inbetween: I hope you’re happy on Brick Lane.”

..And Been So Happy

“Neil’s take on things: I’ve never had so little and been so happy.”

To Live in London

“To live in London is a bore, unless you’ve got a 4×4. The roads in London are a task – of course I need a jeep, why ask?”

Anyone know who wrote these or if there are any more around?

Londoners: Walking to Work

It was early morning and I was wandering around Liverpool Street, Devonshire Square and the little alleyways in between. I loved the position of this man walking to work in his suit with the graffiti in the background.

Around the Corner to Cock Hill

Around the corner from this pretty wall is the dingy Cock Hill with this lovely flourescent green message “Please DON’T PISS on our door”. At least they asked nicely, I guess.

Please Don't Piss on Our Door

Happy Monday everyone!
