East London’s Shoreditch is one of the most painted parts of the capital. The area’s structures and walls are the canvases for the named, and the unnamed, graffiti and street artists and their work. But where, and by whom? This interactive guide maps the most unmissable and iconic street art in the neighbourhood, in addition to the galleries – contemporary or otherwise – which have made Shoreditch their home.
Street artist Roa is a muralist from Ghent, Belgium whose work has often been recorded and photographed, but very little is known about the artist and even less is documented.
