Snaps taken in the King John car park 3rd Decemember 2016

I’ve been waiting a couple of years to get into the King John car park off Holywell Lane. The car park is now a building site of regeneration. But I took my chance to slip thru a broken barrier fence to snap the remaining artwork left on the walls. Quite a few of the snaps were painted by  local artist Jim Vision. Sorry I can’t credit the other artists… Over the years there have been many murals painted here. Access has always been a problem due to the security car parking gate attendants keeping us snappers out!!

Almost my last snap of a long busy day in London, taken along King John Court as I made my way to Old Street underground station. I spoke to the young Mexico artist Acaro  who told me this was his first painting in London.  Quite stunnnnning indeed I thought!

Many thanks to the generosity of Cityzen Kane who gave my daughter a sculpture called Alien Head2 signed and dated 2012 on the back.
