Return to Brick Lane, more Street art (1)

It’s well over a year since I visited Brick Lane, largely because of the issues with Southern Rail, the train operator in my bit of the world. Any way, yesterday was the day my friend and I had set for a wander around Brick Lane, and then a nice lunch in a bistro we both like..

Alas, my walking was worse than usual, and the bistro was shut Tuesdays! Undeterred, we had a gentle wander with stops factored in, and manage to hoover up quite a bit of street art into our cameras in the process! The street art is ever changing, and things get added to by other people, often annoyingly, but that’s how it is! Lunch was in a typical East End pub (scampi and chips, very acceptable, even if not what we were intending!), then a visit to Whitechapel Art Gallery.

Today I shall show some monochrome street art..not my processing, but the design of the artists concerned. Click on any image to start the slideshow.



  1. My favorite is the walker and his shadow – such movement and that unbalanced feeling the viewer gets.
    Fabulous art!

    • Sue

      Yes, I like it, and remember another one similar to this that I saw in the past – don’t think I put that in a post, so must dig it out….

  2. Strong impact , really!

  3. I also like the ‘bovver boy’ and his shadow best. The use of perspective in that one is very skillful. They are all good though. Thanks, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. great graffitis, Sue, I love this kind of art, too

  5. Very nice collection. I particularly like the one with the man and his shadow…(Suzanne)

  6. Yes, my favourite is the walker with shadow too. Great collection of photos, Sue.

  7. Oh, I’m liking this. Many for the price of one – more words and more photos, beautifully photographed. The slideshow is a great format.

    • Sue

      It’s amazing what one can see in a short distance her, luckily for me, Meg! Glad you like this post…another one tomorrow with more images, then I shall be back to my usual sparer posts!

  8. Shame it wasn’t one of your better days, Sue, but I love your positive attitude, and the results are great. 🙂 🙂

  9. It’s a long time since I visited Brick Lane or Whitechapel Gallery (Thomas Struth had an exhibition there). I must get back to both. A superb gallery, Sue.

  10. Some very elaborate works here.

  11. I think I need to visit this Brick Lane. Such a feast for the eyes!

  12. Such amazing street art right there.

Over to you...
