Street Art Tour of London

Street Art Tour of London

Product Review (submitted on February 18, 2016):
We took this walking tour knowing very little about the genre.
Our guide was very personable and also audible! He gave us a lot of information in a short space of time. After viewing the first item I was already feeling well informed and curious about the culture and development of Street Art. Our Guide also told us extra bits of information about the history of the Shoreditch/Brick Lane area, and occasionally supported what he told us about the artists with some visual aids, and he did refer to a book if we wanted some further reading.
I should have liked an option to have a list of the artists names, so that I could look them up later on, but did take notes.
At the end of the tour he also offered us the chance for further questions and a chat if required.
We saw some fascinating works and came away impressed with some of the detail that the artists go to with their creations - use of fine brushes and ink. This isn't just a wild moment with a spray can. Also found out that some of the artists are actually commissioned by the local Authority to create works in certain places. It raised questions about Copyright and Ownership and how these people earn their money. Some Artists now have an income worth thousands of pounds. Totally fascinating. Suitable for all people, other than perhaps young children.
