The oft-painted mural wall on Holywell Lane has had more coats than Elizabeth Taylor. The Shoreditch landmark, beneath the old Tube carriages of Village Underground, has displayed the handiwork of such notables as Eine and Toaster. These days, it's mostly used as an adaptable bill board for big name brands. We've collected together some of the many recent designs in the gallery above.
