About Inspiring City

Inspiring City is a street art focused blog featuring some of the best murals, graffiti art and street artists from London, the UK and around the world.

A New Start

Since moving to the East End of London from the rural idyll of Yorkshire at the beginning of 2012, I soon became captivated with the eclectic mix that is the city of London. The fact that around every corner on pretty much every day of the year there is always something to see or do really captured my imagination.

It was the street art scene that first caught my eye. Always changing and featuring work from some of the top artists both locally and from around the world it turned the East End of London into an exciting outdoor canvas.

THE URBAN AND STREET ART SCENE

Over the years I’ve featured shows and exhibitions, interviews with artists and generally tried to capture what I would now describe as the urban art scene. In particular I try to focus on new and emerging artists because it’s hard out there and the more publicity these talented people get the better.

But the title of the blog is Inspiring City and so that still gives me a fairly large brief in terms of things to write about so don’t be surprised if  I also cover a few historic topics that take my fancy too there is after all so much to learn about in this great city

ART RELATED NONSENSE

Most recently we’ve teamed up with the Art Republic Gallery in Brighton to record a podcast. Featuring interviews with artists and influencers the plan is very much to put a personal face to the art world and see what makes it tick. You can read more about that here.

  1. Thanks for taking a look at my little artist blog, makes it all worth it when I get a like or a follow. Loving the photographs and articles on your blog, I look forward to seeing your next post 🙂

  2. Thanks for the follow! Came across your blog when I wrote mine on street art today and wanted to leave you the link, but had to rush out. Glad you found it though 🙂 Like the posts I’ve seen so far and amazing you got to interview so many of the street artists! Funny to see lots of the same photos I have in my archives, but guess we live in the same area. Should meet up one day! Could do a twin blog post 🙂
