Walking tour - history and contemporary culture
What should local authorities do about ‘graffiti’?
Treat it as a social menace, slap an ASBO on the perpetrators and give them a scrubbing brush? Or should they protect the hallowed works of artists like Banksy, Stik and Thierry Noir behind hastily-erected sheets of protective perspex?
Mr Londoner explores London’s street art scene in the ‘Writing’s on the Wall’ – during a walking tour of Spitalfields and Shoreditch. See some of our city's very best and surprising urban art, learn a bit about the history of the gritty streets that inspired all this creative energy - and discover the genre’s very own secret language.
