When I was in Bricklane the other day, I loved this wall I saw in a cafe - very inspiring! Illustrations as interior decoration seems to be a growing trend across town.

The wall graffiti continued outside.. I think art outside is even better than gallery art as it takes on a new context and meaning with it's surroundings.

Graffiti is becoming more accepted these days, especially with artists like Banksy helping legitimise it.

Above and below are two pieces of street art that caught my eye for the emotional power of the designs.

What I particularly like about street art is the anonymity of the artist. Check these out if you're around the Brick Lane area, and as Banksy did a lot around Brick lane, for all we know maybe some could be by Banksy himself!
