The disappointing disappearance of street art in London

Twat - Shoreditch

Banksy - Faringdon

After strolling around the streets of London this week hoping to photograph some fresh street art I was disappointed to discover a distinct absence of artwork. The usual haunts of Shoreditch, Soho and Brick Lane seemed to be lacking in the usual abundance of stencils and paste-ups. Found a few new Invader mosaics and a Banksy rat in Faringdon, but not much of anything else. Also a lot of the areas around Rivingdon Street were freshly white walled. I hope this can only mean a fresh canvas for London's urban escapaders...
