Britain's 'third hippest street' is undergoing a transformation into an urban art wonderland. Various inflatables, panels and even a giant rubber chicken are already festooned along the street ahead of this weekend's Whitecross Street Party. The two-day event shows off works from over 30 artists, including superstars such as Shepherd Fairey, Ronzo and Dr.d.

The decorations will remain in place for another five weeks, but head down this weekend to meet some of the artists and generally hang out in a relaxed festival atmosphere.
