Night Street Art Photography

The days are getting longer, hurrah!  Another way of looking at it is that the nights are sadly getting shorter.  We are now over halfway through the Shoreditch night street art photography season and it has been a cracker.  The season ends pretty much when the clocks go forward in Spring so there is not much time left to join the fun.

If you have mastered the basics of manual photography and have say for example an ND filter then you can get into really arty night photography with an amazingly photogenic subject matter.

Constant Changes

The enormous panoply of street art in Shoreditch changes daily and it is a constant thrill to be guiding the tour and to come across brand new art which we didn’t know existed. The tour this afternoon was no exception, we came across a lovely piece by Alice Pasquini which hadn’t been seen on any previous tour.   The colourful female character is in typical Alice Pasquini style and its placement outside a shop across lettering proclaiming various beauty treatments available within just “works”, even the drippy tag underneath Alice’s character contributes beautifully to the colour scheme.

Alice Pasquini was in London late last week in connection of the opening of XX: A Moment In Time, an exhibition of new works by female street artists in the Saatchi Gallery so this new piece dates back to last weekend. In another location there was a new piece of art which was so fresh we could still smell paint! Frankie Strand and ThisOne have created a green hued female character threatened in some way by a skeletal gypsy figure. This is the first time I have ever seen Frankie Strand paint a human (like) character.

Earlier this week on a different route the tour came across a couple of other fresh Alice Pasquini paintings.

Frankie Strand has been quite prolific in the past 12 months and earlier this year painted an interesting piece with Crey One on the boundary of the old Shoreditch Tube Station which fuses the core disciplines of graffiti and street art.  Notice This One also appearing in the margins on that piece.
