“Repeat visits are recommended” we urged in our review of the
“Beyond The Streets” Exhibition at Saatchi Gallery in London.
The show has been consistently busy even on weekdays but on Easter Sunday I found myself lasat in in the afternoon and wandering through a completely deserted gallery. This was very much a “quick pop in” visit after an afternoon matinee film finished earlier than had expected, I didn’t have my camera with me so I grabbed a bunch of phone pano shots.
The real magic of the exhibition is in the historic detail, most of that resides in the vitrines and the photo and poster displays. These pano shots of the empty gallery halls really give a better idea of the scale of the exhibition and nature of the contemporary art the graffiti OGs are now creating, I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them.

A couple of weeks ago I made a trip to Manchester to explore that city’s street art. Manchester has great architecture, a distinct exciting personality adn plenty of locations where stencils, stickers, paste ups and graffiti flourishes. There are also some impressive murals.
This next gallery is a sample of the roughly 800 photographs taken over a 2 day exploration.
Space Invader aficionados will doubtless be aware of the Manchester invasion that took place in 2004, 47 street mosaics were left lurking and without too much effort 31 of them were located and dutifully “flashed”.
These are just a small number of the photographic highlights, this is a SHOREDITCH blog after all!! The full write up can be found on the Graffoto blog.
