Random Graffiti of the Week: Sclater Street
Sclatermontage.jpg

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.

You should check out the new bit of art that's appeared on Holywell Lane, which links Shoreditch High St and Great Eastern St - 'VANDALISM' in three foot high letters. I have a particular fondness for this bit of art as I saw the guy painting it a few weeks ago. And as I made my way home after a particularly heavy night last sunday morning, some German guy asked me to walk in front of it while he took a photo. I could be on flickr if I'm lucky.
