Have You Spotted Any Of London's Lockdown-Inspired Street Art?

Have You Spotted Any Of London's Lockdown-Inspired Street Art?

London's reliably brilliant street art scene's been in a boom despite current constraints.

Or maybe because of them: vivid, exuberant murals, sculptures and posters have been blooming across the city in response to lockdown and these increasingly weird times.

Messages of hope, reminders that we're in this together, gratitude for the NHS — or just elegies to all the kissing we can't currently be doing: a whole spectrum of lockdown emotions, captured in glorious technicolour.
