Street art from Schoreditch in London.

For twenty-five years London has been subject to a beautiful onslaught of criminal activity, reprehensible to some, embraced by others, colourful, witty and provocative. Street art, phenomenon of the 1990s, developed from graffiti art, a phenomenon of the 80s, and is today a regular occurrence on London's streets; in some areas it is ubiquitous. The appeal of street art includes its unpredictability, illegality, the challenge it poses to authority, the altruism of the street artist, and the romance and poetry of the work. Shoreditch  is uber hip area in London and anyone serious about finding art need go no further from this funky part of British capital. 

This is the epicentre of the street art scene in the city.
