Almost every day Shoreditch Street Art Tours comes across new art on the streets and it is a privilege to be able to reveal constantly changing art through the tours and through our social media channels like Instagram and Facebook. Last weekend a huge quantity of new art was found on Sunday which we believe was created since the previous visit 24 hours earlier, this is a little insight into the extent to which the street art can change in just one day.
Paste up by Brighton based artists The Postman Art proved very popular when they first appeared in Shoreditch in November last year so it was lovely to find a number of new works from them on Sunday morning, The framing and the brickwork make the Ewan McGregor particularly photogenic.

It became apparent on Saturday that there was going to be a new body of work from The Postman Art in Shoreditch when we disturbed a bit of daytime action by this duo the day. Photo used with The Postman Art’s blessing – many thanks.

Also new on the walls was work by Winniemmay, as a group we did spot the artist installing a few of these on Saturday, so it was nice to see the finished articles.
I roll and fall – Winniemmay
Winniemmay put one of her paste ups over a large freehand painted portrait she did late last year but had accumulated a number of tags and stencils, she told us “everyone else has gone over me, why can’t I?”

We love Uberfub’s sequined skulls and there evidently have been more than one dance macabre over the past week. A couple of skulls born early last week (instagram) had disappeared by Saturday, been laid to rest perhaps. On Sunday the largest sequinned skull I have seen loomed over Brick Lane reminding us to “Scrap Brexit”.

On Saturday morning we came across a new sculpture by the Italian duo UrbanSolid. It was as single brain emitting a wifi hotspot signal, very clever. It was also, as you can see below “signed”. Overnight that single brain hotspot had grown to a multi coloured quartet.

Benjamin Irritant highlighted his loathing of the “want it all, want it now” society we live in with this message in screaming capital letters nicely framed on a distressed door panel, again on Brick Lane. Several other new paste ups by Benjamin were spotted.

Finally, a few dental additions appeared in Shoreditch on Sunday.
On Sunday I spotted 28 new pieces of street art that I had not seen before despite having had a good look at all those walls just the day before. This was just a small sample of Shoreditch’s street art hinterland, there was almost certainly much more art put up on other walls in the area. This daily evolution and transformation of the street art is typical of Shoreditch, now it’s your turn to go out and enjoy it!
