The beauty of coming across a great piece of urban art when you walk in London, is that it can lighten up your day.
They are temporary art pieces which can get replaced by another piece when it wears off, vandalised or covered to protect it, just like that portrait of Amy Winehouse in Camden. Guess where the picture below was until fairly recently?
It was near the Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch, which I mentioned last year as a great place to work as a freelancer.
Shoreditch/ Old Street is an area with great street art pieces. Sadly, works on this corner advanced and so the possibility to see some more in there.
