Stickers are all over the place in Shoreditch and becoming more and more popular as a way of expression. Covering lampposts, walls, windows and generally any surface suitable enough, there are plenty going around.
Now, I’m not normally drawn to the whole ‘sticker’ thing! I was admittedly obsessed with Panini Stickers in the late eighties but since then my tastes have evolved. The truth is since getting into street art I’ve not paid much attention to the growing fad of artist and event self promotion that a lot of the stickers seem to be about.
It therefore took a morning walk around the sticker capital of the world which is the East End of London to fully appreciate that they can be, and indeed many are, art forms in their own right. Sometimes it takes an alternative point of view in order to see things differently and I was lucky enough to be joined on this walk by Shoreditch Art Tours and HookedBlog, both at the forefront of the Street Art scene and ideally placed to educate a relative novice like me.
So, in order to share the sticker love with the rest of the blogosphere I went out to find some of the biggest variety of stickers around and I found quite a few. Hope you enjoy the pics 🙂
