Street Art on the South Bank Celebrating Street Culture

As part of the ‘Urban Celebrating Street Culture’ festival the South Bank Centre joined forces with Global Street Art this weekend to put on a street art paint jam of sorts just below the Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Just one of a number of events over the weekend which includes dance, free running, sports, BMX, skateboarding and other street inspired activities, a number of artists took part. Dan Kitchener, Zakok, Spore, 3DOM, Pref, Ben Murphy and the Lost Souls Graffiti Crew were in attendance and painted throughout the day with an audience of appreciative passers by.

The South Bank Centre really seems to have a focus on street art these days and the art from the festival joins a recent addition under Hungerford Bridge from Stik and some substantial murals from Phlegm and ROA.

As ever some photos of the event below.
