A Decade Of Political Street Art

The third of our series reflecting on the street art we have enjoyed over the past 10 years looked at the street art that appeared on our streets.

Banksy had a lot to contribute politically over the past decade of course.

Banksy, Brexit, Dover

Much of the art was done without permission though there were the occasional huge campaigning murals.

Shoreditch – So Much To Do

It has been a long time since we did this but the dance card for the next few days is chock full of fantastic events you might consider adding to your diary.

The ever brilliant BSMT Gallery in Dalston marked its re-opening last week in better  premises with a group show called Dystopia dedicated to Extinction Rebellion.  Tonight Wednesday 18th September BSMT hosts the first of a series of related workshops.  Following a talk about the mission of Extinction Rebellion there will be an introductory workshop in regenerative culture, which will discuss and provide some of the tools and approaches one can use to maintain one’s physical and psychological well-being in the face climate catastrophe. A specialist in this field from Extinction Rebellion will lead the workshop.

Thursday is packed.  Subdude has his first solo show at the atmospheric Monty’s Bar and I hear he is premiering a range of new previously unseen political lightning bolts.

Finally, the big one this weekend is the Graffestival at the Nomadic Community Gardens, organised by Jim Vision/End Of The Line.  Two “flyers” for this, one being an absolutely stellar collection of spraycan artists from the graff and street art spheres, the second is the music.  This is likely to be the last major spraycan event at this location which has hosted numerous editions of the brilliant Meeting of Styles under same management.  We here the feature wall is going to be something very special for signing off from this spot.

Lest we forget, London Design Festival LDF19 runs until the 22nd of September and there is so much of this located in the Shoreditch area, my fav (so far) has to be this Lee Broom installation which is yards from where our street art tours end
