There are lots of snaps of the Nomadic Community Gardens around. This Bank Holiday weekend will be alive with street artists from all over doing their stuff in the name of “Meeting of Styles”…. A long weekend of painting, music,  food and chilling out! But a couple of years ago I snapped this empty wasteland looking at both ends not knowing quite what this site would yield. Oh boy how it has yielded….

Work in progress from street artist Trafic along Pedley Street, off Brick Lane. Looks like this is going to be a real a stunner… Nice guy Trafic, he gave me a chocolate as I was snapping him with roller in hand painting the white squares.

All Together Banksy & Zandism

“Clown House” painted by Banksy and can be found along Stoke Newington Church Road, London. Only the top part of this snap has survived from his original artwork. I have added the bottom part “All Together Now” from a snap I took earlier that day in Camden of artwork from Zandism. The thing about street art is that anyone can get involved my any means they like and you don’t even need paint!!!

Flaming Easter

I made this collage snap using two snaps  I took in London. One was taken in the Nomadic Community Gardens around a bonfire, the other snap was of artwork by Otto Schade stenciled onto a wall… Looking back on the photos taken during that day, I just had to blend them as the colours were vibrating out just burning to rise up like a phoenix.

Enjoy your hot cross buns folks!!!

Elvis the pelvis is still hip it seems in East London. This highly clever x-ray style artwork, hand painted with spray cans by the brilliant street artist Shok-1. You can find this on the outside metal gates of the old Truman Brewery yard on Hanbury Street,  just off Brick Lane… Maybe the best street art I have seen in London so far this year!
