Street Art in Brick Lane, London, England

Brick Lane Street Art in London, England.

I saw a lot of Brick Lane Street Art when I when I was traveling in London, England. A lot of street art. I mean, when in Shoreditch and walking around the Brick Lane area it’s pretty hard to miss all of the walls full of colorful artwork.

Some, I was introduced to on the Eating London food tour I took in the area. Others I saw by just, well, wandering.

Some of the Brick Lane London street art is from pretty famous artists: 8-bit characters from Invader, a pink car from Banksy, D*Face’s car crushed by a winged bomb, and Ben Eine’s bright lettering.

Other “art” is just straight up graffiti.


One of the most iconic pieces of Brick Lane art is on Princelet Street: the artist Stik’s rendering of a “A couple holding hands in the street.” It shows two stick (or “Stik”) figures, one shrouded in black, in front of a bright red doorway.

    These are some fantastic find Val! Discovering street art is one of my favorite things to do too. Although sometimes even if I enjoyed the many kind of street arts, I didn’t find easy to understand the full story behind each piece, I just enjoyed glancing at it and admiring the artist. Thank you for sharing these to us!
