Hi Graffiti & folk art group,

Is there such a think as an up-to-date graffiti map, I was looking for one in London as i'm hoping to shoot someone with graffiti artworks as the background - meanwhile I may just build my own with posts to this group as its found.

What part of London are you thinking of? I shoot a lot of street art in the Brick Lane area almost on daily basis - other sites include South Bank, etc.

Thanks Steve, Southbank and Bricklane are both good area's - i work near Old Street and would do this one lunchtime.
At the moment many places seem to have peen painted over with Microsoft surface tablet 'graffiti'

I'll take a wander up toward brick lane tomorrow lunchtime.

You're not far from me - I'm just off Bishopsgate - my usual lunchtime walk takes me along Fashion Street, Brick Lane, Redchurch Street and then either along Holywell Lane and back down Curtain Road or loop back down Sclater Street. Today I fancied a change and walked up to Hoxton and the top end of Shoreditch High Street as there were a couple of pieces of street art I wanted to find.

If you want to meet up one lunchtime for a quick tour - especially some of the largescale stuff for backgrounds - let me know.

Is this LDN Website of any use ?

The blog within LDN Graffiti is useful for seeing what's new but the maps are very limited in what contain. There are others such as Stik Map or Global Street Art Walls Project that are probably more useful and upto date.

However street art can and does change on a daily basis - what is painted one day could be gone the next!
