Tiger in London Street Art by Otto Schade & Dan Kitchener

So this caught my eye while I was out at work a few days ago, and I just had to stop to take some pictures because of how beautiful and vibrant this looked. The artwork looked pretty familiar – and I realised it was a colloboration of Dan Kitchener (whose intense work I’m in love with) and Otto Schade (I have seen a lot of his ‘ribbon effect’ work around Camden).

It was certainly a beautiful highlight of my day to spot this, and I’ll be keeping an eye out for more vibrant pieces like this!

Camden Town’s Colourful Street Art

I love wandering around London and looking for art-work – street art, sculptures and giant landmarks – so Camden is a beautiful treasure trove for all of the beautiful art work scattered around the town. I won’t write too much, as the pictures really do speak for themselves – dreamy landscapes, satirical cartoons, and bright, rainbow colours pieces covering the whole wall of buildings.

I had a really lovely afternoon discovering these, and will be re-visiting soon enough to look for more – the ones below aren’t even all of the photos I took!

Beautiful Rainy Street Art by Dan Kitchener

I saw this a couple of days ago while wandering around Camden Town, which is rich with beautiful, quirky and huge street art scenes all over the town.

I fell in love with this rainy scene by artist Dan Kitchener, whose work is all over London (and also parts of Europe!) – the bright lights (which reminded me of Tokyo!), rainy reflections on the floor, slick vehicles and plenty of umbrellas – there’s something to stare at in every corner. This piece covers a whole wall along the side of a restaurant in the centre of Camden Town, and looks stunning with its mix of bright colours against a black dark background. Something about all the pedestrians hiding under umbrellas seems like it should be lonely, but instead it is haunting, beautiful and gives a sense of solidarity – there’s plenty of rain and umbrellas in London but we’re all together, perhaps.

I’ll be looking for more of these, but what a beautiful way to enjoy the weekend, hey?
