This walking tour gets up close and personal with the dynamic east London street art scene. You’ll see art on the walls, the sides of buildings and sidewalks…..
On this walk we will see work by Banksy, quite possibly the most famous living street artist in the world, as well as street art by Ben Eine whose piece “Twenty First Century City” was recently presented by Prime Minister David Cameron to Barrack Obama. We will also see work by Shepherd Fairey the most celebrated street artist working in the US today, known around the world for his Obey and Hope campaigns.
You will discover how the huge growth and popularity of Street Art is reflected in the astonishing transformation of Spitalfields and Shoreditch from a once seedy and deprived area into one of the most vibrant, most fashionable, most happening neighbourhoods in London.
This tour can be done as a Full or Half Day.
If time allows we will also visit a gallery and studio.
