    Yes huge difference between this and the mindless tagging that we used to call graffiti.

    Hi,

    They were taken in the Shoreditch / Brick Lane area of London. It is generally my favourite area of London for graffiti but during this visit some of the places I used to see graffiti had gone as new buildings had replaced what was previously boardings where the artwork was.

    There are some other areas in London that are good including Bethnal Green and Camden but this seems to me the concentrated area of work. London is by no means the only UK city with great work though, I love some of the work in places like Sheffield, Birmingham and Glasgow for instance and can upload these if there is any interest in seeing them.
