East London Street Art In Photos

Street art might not always be a legal way for artists to express themselves and showcase their work in public, but in London local councils have long given up on removing it.  Its existence has cultural benefits and in places like Camden and East London, it is celebrated.  People travel to the area specifically to photograph it.

For me, street art is one of the reasons I love living in East London.  I love that it’s colourful, and sometimes controversial, and when you’re lucky enough to catch an artist in action it’s fascinating to watch!

My Favourite East London Street Art

Since I moved to East London I’ve taken countless photos of the art around Shoreditch, Brick Lane, and Hackney, so I decided it was time I shared my favourites with you.  I never specifically go out to photograph the street art in this area of London.  Most of the time I’ll just be walking back to my flat near Brick Lane or rushing to meet a friend and I’ll spot a piece I hadn’t noticed before.

Some of the street art in this post has now gone, that’s the beauty of East London street art; it’s always changing.  But here are my favourites, let me know what yours are in the comments at the end of the post!

      The people who do it are all listed next to the photos I’ve put up, but there are many more street artists (some from London, some not) than what I’ve mentioned in this post. Sometimes when you’re walking around London you’ll actually see people creating street art – it’s amazing to watch!
