Shoreditch wall gems !!

By Chinga
Shoreditch wall gems !! Once a notoriously seedy corner of East London, Shoreditch is now one hot location to visit. Londoners and tourists flock to this area to shop, eat and drink and enjoy diverse forms of entertainment. The area is full of bars, galleries, clubs, markets, and coffee shops. (including one that serves nothing but cereal, and another that allows you to play with cats while you sip your tea !!). Shoreditch is famed for its graffiti and street art, which covers walls, doors, and windows. A joy for the camera !!
Thank you very much to: Alfie (Alfie_P), Vince (VincentChristopher), Dave (Mistere), Colleen (ColleenA), Debs (Frogs123), Mike (Mike_Smith), Dave (Doverpics), Lynne (LynneJoyce), Ken (Rambler) and Jukka (Kuvailija) who kindly awarded the tree faces set.
I thank you all, Isabel GrinGrin

An excellent set Isabel. And there are certainly some gems there.

On a more general note,I'm always concerned with this kind of photography (including when I do it) that we are judging the original artists (and possibly impinging their copyright) as well as the photographer; without their skills there wouldn't be a photo! So composition exposure and presentation have to spot on and possibly add something to the original. Nevertheless It's worth taking the photos as so often the graffiti are "cleaned away' or the wall, screen or building demolished.
So keep up the good work, Isabel, of recording London's graffiti!

Excellent set of images, indeed they are gems, there are some very good artists in the East End Isabel ⭐ Unlike jacomes I consider it Street Art and not Graffiti which is something completely different 🤔

Great set, V2 for me today. It's a pity that the Shakesperian quote gets mangled though.

""All that glisters is not gold;
Often have you heard that told.
Many a man his life hath sold
But my outside to behold.
Gilded tombs do worms enfold."

But I guess that would take up too much room on a Shoreditch wall.
