Anyone with a casual interest in London’s street art could do worse than a visit to Sclater Street. This short road in Shoreditch connects the northern end of Brick Lane to Bethnal Green Road. Virtually every surface is covered with high-quality murals, from a range of artists. You can even find sculpture.
But catch it while you can. The viaduct visible in some of these images will form part of the East London Line extension, and is likely to be remodelled sometime soon. This won’t be the first street art lost to the new transport link. The space invader on King John Court has now disappeared, along with that whole section of viaduct.
