Little Blackall Street in Shoreditch is awash with art. Just off from Great Eastern Street it is essentially a glorified alley which forms the back end of a number of old warehouse type buildings.
It’s somewhat urban and slightly (but not too much) off the beaten track setting, tends to attract artists including RUN, C215, 616, Swoon and Alice Pasquini.
Other artists featured on the street include D7606 with his phone box paste ups, Dscreet with his owls, Stik, Pablo Delgado and Rowdy with his crocodile.
It’s only a small street so won’t take long to walk up and down but it’s certinaly worth a visit if your in the area.

A very strange offbeat street indeed and always worth a look! Another plus is the little cafe on the corner.. If you take a look at the old car park swipe reader 616 has made a face out of it! makes me smile……
There’s always something new there I’ll have to check out that cafe 🙂
It would be good to see a tour of quirky cafes by bus and foot along with the fun of snapping street art in a day out in the big city!!
Too right nothing beats a good quirky cafe especially if it does carrot cake :p
