I went searching for street art last weekend. Graffiti doesn’t usually get coverage in the mainstream press, but reports of this tribute to the author Terry Pratchett (1948-2015) and illustrator Josh Kirby (1928-2001) have appeared in the Guardian, Daily Telegraph, and Evening Standard.
Over the past year I have come across lots more street art, entirely by accident, as I walked round London. Here are some of the more memorable.
Shoreditch area is watched over by several animal guardians, some welcoming, some less so.
Camden Town is another good place to find street art.
If you are in passing through Camden Town, look carefully at one of the bridges over the canal, and you might see an octopus created by China Girl Tile.
