Discover more about the increasingly prevalent London tradition of street art on this walking tour through Shoreditch and Hoxton.
The streets of these two adjacent inner city areas have in recent years hosted the trend influencing counterculture that has put this part of town on the map as a cultural centre. Clubs, boutiques, galleries and artist studios have come and gone and come again generating an evolving trail of street art, urban illustration and graffiti.
This two hour tour will bring to your attention hidden, subtle, daring, diverse, and famed recent and established works. Sometimes on the main roads, but mainly led through ancient alleys and lanes, you will zigzag through the geography of this historic yet edgy part of London.
On the tour you will visit a diverse array of mediums such as paste ups, stencils, murals, stickers, left objects, graffiti, and a handful of more traditional illustration and graphics galleries. Learn about the artists behind these works and why they have settled on this part of town.
Course requirements: You may wish to bring a camera, a notebook and something to write with.
