I Don’t Like Cricket – I LUVITAAAAAAH

It is not often that cricket and street art meet but that did happen today in the home of street art, Brick Lane, Shoreditch when a small but perfectly formed group from the Shoreditch Street Art Tour came across the Cricket World Cup being displayed on Brick Lane.

ICC Cricket World Cup meets Shoreditch Street Art Tours Group

The gentleman holding the trophy on behalf of the ICC confirmed that he was English (albeit not a cricketer), let’s hope this is not the only pair of English hands to be placed on that trophy next year.

The other street art connection is that a huge mural welcoming the World Cup to the home of cricket appeared on Brick Lane last night painted by the professional spraycan artists Graffiti Life – good job guys!

Shocked by the tragic events in Paris this week, street artists have been quick to respond.
