What Are We Going To Do Now? Street Art Private Views Thursday 31 Oct

Only a couple of shows in the Shoreditch Street Art Tour diary this Thursday, which it being Halloween could be due to most artists being out trick-or-treating.  Several of Shoreditch Street Art Tour’s friends are in these shows, which is a tragedy as other engagements are likely to keep us out of the art galleries.  Nevermind, the big highlight is actually on Friday – Stanley Donwood, again!

Hush – Fatales

Buxom babes, bombs, geishas, abstract tag backgrounds..just guessing.

Group Show – Go Hard Or Go Home

Most of the publicity appears to inform us that this show is curated by Jon Patrick Boyle aka Motorboy.  This could explain the detectable Bristol slant to a cracking line up which includes our favourites  Cept, ACE, Sweet Toof, Pure Evil, Sickboy and Beejoir among others.

FRIDAY 1 NOV: Stanley Donwood – Apocalypse Boutique

Friends who have been to Shoreditch Street Art Tour’s hideaway know what huge fans we are of Mr Donwood so it is a real treat to have a second Donwood show in a month (the Lazarides Rathbone Place show was extended by 1 week and finishes this weekend).  In his words “THis is a strange kind of sample of what I’ve been doing for the past eight or nine years…Some of the work is painted, some printed, and some a combination of the two. Although there are other printing techniques employed here, a lot of the work was screen-printed at the Slowly Downward Manufactory”.

Special maps are available on the internet to show where Stoke Newington is.

Fancy Some Art And A Free Beer Tonight?


It’s the middle of the month Thursday meaning it’s not First Thursday, meaning you got to work a little harder to find those Shoreditch urban art openings.  This time next month they’ll be telling you what to buy your significant other for Christmas; the month after they’ll be asking you if you’ve bought it then December it’s all pop up group shows and panic buying dashed off art at stupid prices.  Maybe this is the time to think ahead.  Shoreditch Street Art Tour likes to help you with that, on roughly a24 hours horizon, lets plan ahead.    One night at a time yeah…… this is what you should be doing tomorrow night (or tonight if you are wasting work time planning your social diary).



Now this is where I am going to be.  Anyone who has been on a Shoreditch Street Art Tour will have heard me say “and now…my favourite street artist”, and now, the first show by ALO that I will have been too.

Signal Gallery – it’s A Stick Up

Dale and Chris seem to be really busy these days.  Let me reproduce the blurb in its entirety:  “These new special edition books have customised cover artworks by the world’s most remarkable and celebrated street artists. Presented in a special screen printed box there will only be 10 by each artist available.”  ACE, Dale Grimshaw, HIN, Pablo Delgado and Paul Insect, so I guess there must bme 50 copies available if my maths AND my English are up to snuff.
