Street art daily: day ten

Camden Town, London.

Camden is the hub for all things alternative and it’s one of London’s major attractions for those looking for something a bit different to Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament and The London Eye. 

Like Shoreditch, and East London in general, Camden is becoming an top spot for street artists from all over the world to ply their trade. Just minutes from the tube station there’s some amazing murals to be found by the likes of Jimmy C, Otto Schade, Irony and Boe and Dan Kitchener (and many more).

Camden-Cranio-2

Work by the unmistakable Brazilian, Cranio.

Camden-Cranio

And here he is again!

Camden-Dan-Kitchener

Beautiful work by Dan Kitchener

Camden-Himbad

Work by Himbad

Camden-Home-Street-Home

Camden really is ‘home street (art) home’.

Camden-Irony-and-Airborne-Mark

Piranha’s made out of rolled up cash. Maybe that’s an interesting look on our government? Work by Irony and Airborne Mark.

Camden-Jimmy-C

This is an absolutely incredible piece by Jimmy C. It’s worthy of any gallery and yet we have his work on the streets of London for free.

Much of the street art in this post is in an area in Camden soon to be demolished and turned into accommodation (with extortionate rent no doubt), so get down to Camden and explore the streets instead of the markets for a change. You never know, you might just like what you see.

Where do you think is the best area for street art in London? Is Camden better than Shoreditch?

As always, graffiti lovers & artists, add comments and share your favourite London street art.
