Art in the city

  • Posted May 5, 2012 by Peachedice Viewed 181 times

As many people know, or may have been told, ‘art’ is not soley limited to a painted canvas and with a keen eye, much can be seen in the world around you.

The East End of London is one my favourite places to take casual strolls. It's eclectic mix of markets, galleries, people as well as shops and cafes make it one of the most inspiring places to be in. Though a world away from the trim and neat squares and terraces of South Kensington, Chelsea, Mayfair and the like, I think it is certainly a place to be given the credit it deserves.

The markets of Brick Lane and Broadway are indeed a sensory experience. Not only can you smell the food being cooked behind the stall, there is also the sound of small groups of musicians strumming their guitars, beating their drums, playing the cello and singing at the top of their voices. The streets are often crowded with a variety of people and different languages, colours and sounds can be seen, and heard.

Here is a pick of the crop in terms of what I saw during my last visit. The weekends are always busy, and there are always quite special moments to capture on camera.
