Born 2 B Mild

This beautiful piece of Free Art by HNGR Art finds itself a new home with the delighted Nastasja from Holland. “Born 2 be mild” says the cute canvas, you can’t go wrong with pussy cat art.

Free Art is art left out on the streets to be collected and many pieces of free art have been given a new home by guests taking the Shoreditch Street Art Tour.

Delighted Nastasja

Nastasja deserved this lovely Free Art find for dressing warm and thoroughly enjoying Saturday’s chilly tour.

HNGR Art says on Facebook “abandoned in a London leisure centre car park over the summer”, poor kitten. Sounds like the art has an interesting history already.

Skeleton Cardboard: Not In Use

It’s all about the art on the street, that’s Shoreditch Street Art Tours. However, last Saturday the tour chanced upon an un-publicised pop-up one day exhibition by someone who has featured often on the tours and on the Shoreditch Street Art Tours blog – Skeleton Cardboard. So we popped in!

Inside was a collection of Skeleton Cardboard’s increasingly crazy skeleton characters with their appropriation and mockery of health and safety warnings.

The thing that was really special was that this to view the exhibition you walked off the street directly into someone’s front room, a private dwelling. One of those gallery experiences where you don’t feel in the least bit intimidated or over-awed at being in front of a display of art. Rather like viewing street art on the street actually.
