Many thanks to the generosity of Cityzen Kane who gave my daughter a sculpture called Alien Head2 signed and dated 2012 on the back. Cityzen Kane has placed many sculptures around London in his unique style of street artwork.http://streetartlondon.co.uk/blog/2011/02/14/street-artist-interview-cityzen-kane/

It was one of those days when I had mapped out soooo much to do and once again in London it was the unexpected finds by chance that just makes my day!!! In fact there were a few things that will stick in my mind but the one I’m sharing with you here is Mario’s Cafe in Kentish Town. Why?…. Well life revolves around people and just seeing faces can tell it’s own story. I say no more…. but you will form your own I’m sure…
Mario’s cafe can be found at 6 Kelly Street, Kentish Town.

I’m having pleasure with my secondhand retro looking camera a Fuji X20. I’m a bit slow on the uptake with all the settings but hope in time to master some of them… So off I went on Saturday to London to snap away! My main task was to vistit the Shok-1 exhibition at “Pictures On Walls”, 46-48 Commercial Street. It’s only on untill the 19th December so had to get along to see such amazzzzing X-Ray style art from the street artist Shok-1. https://www.facebook.com/SHOK1art?hc_location=timeline.

Just before I got there I climbed up onto the roof of a building in the graveyard next to Christ Church, Spitalfields to snap what was left of “Guilty Pleasures” painted by D*Face a couple of weeks ago.

Quite a story getting home as all the trains leaving Euston had been cancelled due to somebody being hit by a train.

“You don’t have to die for freedom, Nelson Mandela never did”

Freedom for black & white old & young
Freedom for mind & soul
Freedom is but a wish for some
Freedom is not sold
Freedom is in your hands
Freedom freedom free yourself
Grip it well & never let it slip away

Street artwork by Paul Don Smith, London.

Snaps, quote & poem by Mitch Hicks in memory of Nelson Mandela
