Many people might have probably stopped noticing the many graffitis that cover many
areas in many cities around the world. It is not that strange, as many of them are just badly drawn figures or words that do not make much sense. Not every drawing deserves to be removed, though. Street art is more appreciated these days.
I reckon artists like Banksy or Keith Haring have had a lot to do. For many years, graffitis have been perceived as the kind of thing that unruly teens do. There are really good pieces of art out there in the streets of London, though.
I took a few pics in the Brick Brick Lane area a few days ago. I will be doing some street art walks and reporting on them soon. Hope you enjoy my pics!
All of them are remarkably different in theme, etc. Some examples:
Animals seem to be a recurrent topic. Some of them are quite complex and we can feel the many hours of work that the artists must have spent doing them. The last one can be found in Camden Town.
Portraits is another theme. It is a shame how some of them have been spoiled.
Even the Queen is being portrayed! This one is from the Camden Town area.
Two more pictures from Brick Lane. I find that the technique used in the one on the left can be seen in many gallery portraits lately, similar to Georges Seurat‘s technique to a certain extent.
Street signs – so funny!
