Usain Bolt on Sclater Street

One of the most dramatic pieces of street art currently around is the Usain Bolt piece which looks over the Sclater Street car park towards Shoreditch High Street. It appeared just before the Olympics and is a fantastic work from Jonny Cochrane, an artist with many pieces decorating the area around Brick Lane. This whole section of wall seems to get painted over quite often but this is supposedly an authorised piece so will hopefully stay for some time yet. It’s powerful, impactful and will surely act as a magnet drawing visitors to the area.
