Tellin’ Stories: Street Art

The lovely people at Speak Media just off Brick Lane have just published a cool feature about street art story telling featuring Shoreditch Street Art Tours founder and chief guide Dave.

It’s a lovely little piece, the photos look stunning and we hope that we won’t be around in 1000 years to see if our prediction for future story telling is accurate.

Just for fun, here are a couple of bonus photos of two moments related in the Speak Media feature;

Street Art, Politics, Money, Fame

Shoreditch Street Art Tours’ guide Dave was interviewed on TRT World alongside illuminati such as street artist Pure Evil and gallerist Steve Lazarides, exalted company indeed.

Journalist Emma Birchley put together a well thought out assessment of street art as both a political voice and a career for urban artists.  It becomes clear that the two are not mutually exclusive.

Street artists who work features in the clip that regularly feature on our tours include Manyoly (France), K-Guy (UK), A.CE (UK), Tizer ID,  Amara por Dios (Swe), Bambi (UK) and someone called Banksy.
