London: Street Art Walking Tour

Uncategorized

When I was down in London for New Designers, I decided that on my last day after New designers finished, I would take a little tour of different parts of London that I missed during my last visit.

Whilst I was down, I was recommended to go on the street art walking tour which takes place every Sunday in central London. This tour included the art of many artists including Banksy and Pure Evil (including a gallery featuring art from the artist and other street artists). This tour was very enjoyable and being a huge fan of street art, I loved getting to experience all of the hidden locations full of amazing art work.

We had walked around the area of Shoreditch which featured a lot of work including Banksy, Invader etc so here is some…of many! photographs from the tour.

The Black Keys. What a band.

Art, Love, Photography

I started listening to The Black Keys just last year and I have to say…I am addicted! They are an amazing rock duo from Akron, Ohio and formed in 2001. The group consists of Dan Auerbach (guitar and vocals) and Patrick Carney (Drums). ¬†They began as an independent act after the duo dropped out of college and they eventually emerged amoung a range of popular rock revival artists in the 2000s. In 2011, they had sold over 2 million albums in the United States! They have a lot albums released since 2002 and their Debut album was “The Big Come Up”…which was recorded in Carney’s basement! The groups commercial break though came in 2010 with their album “Brothers”…which is an AMAZING album! so get on Spotify or YouTube and give it a listen if you haven’t already! Their most recent album is “El Camino”…which is also an amazing album! from this album, they are going to undertake their very first arena concert tour. The first of their career!

So, you may be wondering why I am talking about The Black Keys…well, I was recently looking at their website and came across a lot of their posters from various different gigs they have done throughout America and they are amazing!

and there are LOADS more! amazing artwork AND an amazing band!

Gaming Street art!

Art, Love, Photography

So, I was just browsing the internet and I came across a pretty interesting street artist. His name (or is known as) is OakOak. He is a French street artist who likes to play with the urban elements!

I really like street art! even though some people believe it to be a horrible scribble on a wall (some of it is but not a lot) but there is quite a lot of amazing street art out there! Take Banksy for example. Simple but really effective pieces of art. Also, the Berlin wall is filled with amazing street art ( as well as some little memories that tourists write!)

Here is a few images by OakOak! He has a huge selection of artwork but I am just going to show a little peek of his ‘gaming’ art!

It’s normally not a girly thing… but I do love playing games so I think this is one of the reasons that I found it pretty cool!

So there is a mixture of games such as Mario, Angry Birds and the TV show Futurama. When I first looked at a lot of his gaming art, I though it was pretty cool and quite fun to look through!

Here is a few of his other street artwork!

So there was a good few pieces of art from OakOak! Check out his blog to find much much more!! OakOak

Hope you enjoyed!
