Street Art in London
Not so long ago, Street Art was seen as nothing more than anti social graffiti. Now not only is it recognised as a positive example of social communication and an expression of today's vibrant street culture, but and here's the extraordinary change it has a real value. The great street artists can (if they wish) sell their artworks for astonishing amounts and are often found hanging as a centrepiece in the office of a multi-national or as an eclectic piece having pride of place in a modern millionaire's city pad.
Street Art is all over London, the Fourth Plinth
at Trafalgar Square
is currently displaying Yinka Shonibare's Nelson's Ship in a Bottle
, not 'traditional' street art, but art is in the eye of the beholder. Of course when talking about Street Art in London it must include Banksy, sometimes funny, sometimes political, sometimes thought provoking and sometimes just entertaining. As well as Banksy, there's, art in Canary Wharf, Installations in Spitalfields, public art displays in Lewisham and elsewhere an abundant amount of Street Art in London including Banksy.
