The Illegal Galleries

Hidden away in the back alleys of Peckham is art. The walls celebrated with colour; pink, purple, green, white. The precision, the care, the artist, the love. The place where anything is created, the freedom you feel when exiting the busy high street to a place where you can break the rules in the most…

Lover or friends…

London is famous for its amazingly intricate and diverse street art. I stumbled upon a piece that instantly captured my eye as it was not only made up of bold colours, but was also constructed from an interesting aspect. It is also interesting to note that this piece was found outside an architecture building. The…

The Red Box

Brrrring… Brrrring…BRRRRING! Did you hear that? There is it again. What’s that sound? The Red Box.  Parked alone in the scurrying head-bent crowds, each face glow with beams from a smartphone’s white sun.

Driven by his own battles with mental health issues and ‘a desire to be a positive influence on society’, Leek uses bold pops of…

We walked on the street and talked about how people in London usually dressed. Well, we agree that people in London like dark colour the most,…

Die Tanzenden

Arising the fall of the Berlin Wall, the effects left behind the ruins of what had segregated two communities which is commemorated currently as the East Side Gallery. Rather than reminiscing on the past, Berlin has created this area for creativity. From my own recent visit, I came across a specific piece that I found…

Dull London

On Monday the 23rd of October we set out to find the colour we have been working with the past 3 weeks. My colour was red, what I learnt while out taking pictures was how dull London was. Without that splash of colour dotted around it would be a black, white, grey and brown city….
