Seeds of change

 

Preparing the ground

life will never be the same

look on the bright side

 

by Scooj

Yesterday’s haiku from which the last line was taken to create the first line of today’s:

 

Each moment savoured

each crumbling of every clod

preparing the ground

 

 

1888. Shoreditch, London (6)

I had to go to London a couple of weekends back for an important event at the Science Museum on a Monday morning, so I travelled up on the Sunday to stay with my sister in Stoke Newington. I arrived early on the Sunday (I had planned this) and decided to walk from  my sister’s to Brick Lane in Shoreditch. I walked for more than fifteen miles over about five hours and took just shy of 500 pictures. I was treated to some astonishing street art, and this is the first of several posts from that trip. I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I did.

This first piece was one of several huge murals by pairs of artists on a theme of connections or connectivity organised by Global Street Art. This was a pairing of Lovepusher and Mr Cenz. I have never seen  the work of Lovepusher before – he painted the ‘Future’ 3D sphere – but Mr Cenz’s work is very familiar and can be found all over the Shoreditch area.

I am a little out of my depth with London artists or the London scene and leave the detail about these pieces to bloggers much better placed to do it such as London Calling. I will post more from this wall at a later date.
