Do I feel lucky?

I cannot recall ever visiting a place as covered in graffiti as I encountered while travelling through Athens last week. Barely a single surface in the city has been spared the spray can and while the overwhelming majority of jottings extend to little more than tags, anarchist slogans and profanity, there is without doubt a whole stack talented artists producing street…

Press to reset the world

It’s been quite a few weeks since I published anything, so please accept my apologies. We were in East London at the weekend and had time to photograph the new street art on display for your pleasure. Just a short post today as I’ve been having trouble typing recently. Hopefully the pictures will speak for themselves….

Street art gallery – Berlin edition

Herself and I are just back from a four day trip to Berlin and while I will save the details of the excursion (and my thoughts about the city) to another post, I am eager to show you some of the street art that we spotted in this most unusual of European capitals.  It took most of our Saturday…

Back in Camden Town – Street Art Gallery

Camden Town Street Art or: Staying Busy While the Woman is Away. Herself has been in Greece visiting family this week. As a result, I’ve been at somewhat of a loose end back home in London. While it’s only been a few days, in even that short time the flat looks like a hurricane blew through and, in…

I was not designed to make you laugh

In a recent post I discussed wanting to make a change to my life and, sure enough , I went and took the plunge. I no longer work with VICE News (the three hour daily commute was steadily eroding my will to live), but have instead taken a post with the BBC. Since I was…

Only little people pay tax

It’s been somewhat of an eventful time as of late, culminating in an appointment and discussion with my neurologist about how we would move forward with a treatment plan for my Multiple Sclerosis. When he commended my level headedness through the process so far – from my initial bout with a sixth annular nerve palsy and speculative…

Be careful! Got it!

Things move fast in this town and I was made sure of that when I went for a walk before lunch and stumbled across a whole heap of street art pieces that seem to have materialized out of thin air over the weekend. I had to move a few bins and jump a few walls…

The story of last night

“Maybe we’ll find a little adventure,” joked Herself as we headed out for a walk in the neighbourhood after dinner last night. We live in one of London’s quieter districts and the evenings tend to be tame on this side of town. We’re low-key people. We like it that way. Nearing the end of our…

My Idea of Fun

I was lucky enough to negotiate a day off work last Thursday and since the weather was looking tasty, I grabbed my camera and headed to East London to see what new street art had appeared since my last visit. I took hundreds of photos and have picked the best to present for your convenience…

Never use a long word where a short one will do.

When I first started photographing the street art around London two years ago, I had no idea that I would amass such a huge collection of pictures and artifacts – If I was one for overblown hyperbole, I’d almost describe it as pantagruelian (but I’m not, so I won’t). I have nearly used three quarters…

Everybody needs a hobby

Sometimes beautiful, often puerile, but always interesting, I have been photographing the street-art around London for a couple of years now and I’m constantly surprised by the ingenuity and originality shown by artists across the city. We went to Brick Lane at the weekend and I decided to use the visit as an opportunity to…

A Kind of Compulsion

When I started photographing the street-art around London (particularly in Camden Town) I had no idea that I would be so busy at it. It’s a labour of love and I’m frequently impressed by the level of creativity shown by the artists. These new pieces by Autone1, Reb.MWC, DRT and Trust Icon have appeared almost…

Things not seen everyday

It looks like I have now arrived at the point at which it is impossible to go for a even short stroll through Camden Town without finding at least a few new street art piece worthy of capture. I see new works everywhere, and this afternoon was no different. A particular highlight to the afternoon…

I Remember the Future

I’m reluctant to say that we’re seeing a golden age of street -art in Camden Town, but there is certainly a great amount of spectacular work appearing here on almost a daily basis. This afternoon I spotted an excellent work from Gonzo design cowboy ensemble, Id-iom,as well as a fantastic collaborative work from Itaewon, Autone,…
