About the Experience
A focal point for graffiti writers and street artists, east London gives a snapshot of a movement that’s evolving day by day. Given its proximity to the City, rich cultural history and status as the UK's tech hub, it's easy to see why it's such a fertile setting. On a walk round the neighbourhood, active street artist Karim Samuels will uncover the many layers of urban art that have appeared on the district's walls – some obvious, some hidden – and introduce the key players and notable pieces. A hot topic for discussion on this SideStory Experience will be how artists tread the line between commercial success and ‘keeping it real’, as more and more underground work is absorbed into the mainstream.
