A very short walk off Brick Lane

I was having a wander around Brick Lane, and thought I could do a walk for Jo…. a very small one, because she might like this curious find.

So we start in Brick Lane, at the top end, and turn into Pedley Street by the restaurant called Kinkao, which always has a big piece of street art on it’s wall – I showed this before (https://suejudd.com/2019/02/15/the-many-faces-of-kinkao/)

As you amble down here, you will see quite a lot daubed on the walls – I was quite taken with this almost monochrome one:

Walk a short distance further and you come to a green space, colourful images on the wall to your left, trains rumble over nearby.

A little further on, to your left, you notice a colourful invitation to the Nomadic Gardens.

I walk into the light, and find a most quirky place. The first thing I noticed was a rather disturbing Mother Theresa

But it was a beautiful sunny day, and the place was full of interesting objects, street art, and a mobile café:

Fancy a seat?

and look at this psychedelic van:

and a bright bike:

Anyway, I come out, pass some girls creating their street art

and see the train overhead, more colourful walls, then swing back to where I started

  1. Looks like quite an interesting walk, Sue. Not a fan of the Mother Teresa, but other than that, lots of excellent art.

  2. The ‘devilish’ Mother Theresa is strange indeed. But the tiger is great! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Gorgeous, Sue! Thanks so much 🙂 🙂 I especially like that first photo, but it’s such an interesting area. Not sure about Mother Theresa! Looks more like the freaky guy from Star Wars to me, but I always was warped. 🙂 Meet you at the mobile café?

  4. How very very great, Sue! I loved walking with you!

  5. Especially love the demonized mother T. Great shots of excellent art.

  6. Great street art walk Sue 😀😀

  8. I love the colorful wall murals, Sue, and even the monochrome one! Mother Theresa’s red eyes look positively devilish! Yikes! 🙂
