Chance Street in Shoreditch has been transformed over the past few months with two significant murals adding to the already dominant hedgehog left by Belgian artist ROA in 2012.
Just across the street from Shoreditch High Street station the road has always been a great spot for street art but the murals left over the past few months have really made it stand out from the crowd.
Australia’s Reka and Germany’s MadC have created two marvellously intricate pieces turning one side of the street into an incredible explosion of art. Add to the mix the afore mentioned ROA with his well loved Hedgehog and suddenly Chance Street has become home to three of the biggest names in international street art.
It’s an impressive place to visit and for such a small street it really packs a punch in terms of the art it offers. I visited on a wet and windy day in August to take some snaps, despite the weather it was worth the effort to see some of the best street art around at the moment.
Update – 14th September 2013. I noticed a little addition to the random shoes hanging on telephone wires high above Chance Street. A strange little fish seems to have appeared, the product apparantly of Pablo Delgado more usually known for this minature paste ups. A nice little addition I thought.
