Brick Lane Street Art Tour in Shoreditch London

Brick Lane Street Art Tour in Shoreditch London

Street art is alive and well in London’s Brick Lane.  Although there is certainly some street art which I might just call graffiti, most of it is definitely art.  Everywhere you look you can find posters, sculptures and murals – some of which are more subtle than others.  Although the street art in Brick Lane (and everywhere) is constantly changing, I want to give you a taster of what to expect on a Brick Lane street art tour! Where is…

Sao Paulo Street Art

Sao Paulo Street Art

One of the (many) things I love about South America is the abundance of awesome street art.  Beautiful murals brighten up the dullest of days, as street artists express themselves on blank surfaces all over the cities.  This isn’t graffiti, far from it, this is art.  More skilled with a spray can than I could ever be with a brush, I am continuously awed by street artists and their creations.  Sao Paulo street art is an example of the best….
