As recommended by Stuart I went into the Driftwood Cafe in Trinity Bouy Wharf. Very delightful and friendly cafe by the river and makes my top ten. Yummmy food indeed!

Next call was Woolwich just to ride the free ferry across the Thames!

 Such a charming walk from Pontoon Dock to the Thames Barrier Park overlooking the Thames Barrier from the northside. I must come back to the inviting cafe when I have more time.

Just had to nip over to the Stolen Space Gallery to see for the last time ~ “Gorditas de Chicharron 5”  ~ Painted by Miss Van. Someone paid £14,000 (plus vat)  for the pleasure of hanging this! Hmmmm I guess I’m happy with my free snaps!

A quick walk up and around Brick Lane where I have seen lots of stuff by Savant over the last couple of weeks. Yes he’s been hitting the walls. I came home with one his hardboard artworks!

I love the artwork of Rone.. So it was a pleasure to play around with his artwork with my camera and make this collage based on his current  “Wallflower” exhibition at the Stolen Space Gallery, London.  I have used a snap I took last year  from Rone’s  mural painted high inside the Leonard Street car park as my backdrop.

Please use links below to admire more of his artwork… Enjoy…. Mitch

These are just the tip of a mix of snaps I took at some stuuuunnnning artwork by two french guys who are top of their game in street art now seen all over the world on the streets and in galleries. Both have current exhibition in London.
I was lucky being in London on the same day C215 gave a book signing at the Stolen Space Gallery. It was good to shake his hand and come away with a signed copy to me from Christian Guemy (C215). As for Jeff Aerosol you need to go to west London at the French Gallery in Gloucster Road.. I will feature more from these two in another post!
