Yesterday at Tobacco Docks, StreetFest 2015, returning for it’s eighth consecutive year, this time in its new setting of Tobacco Dock, took place with a day and evening packed with events set to entertain all, including an eclectic mix of music, dance, urban sport, a street kitchen, and most quintessentially for us here at London Calling a whole host of Street Artists and Graffiti Writers to provide live painting throughout the day and early evening, setting to bring together a range of artists from a wide variety of street disciplines to showcase their talents for one amazing event.
There were some 30 plus artists working throughout the day, with the fine selection and organization by fellow Street Artist Jeba, presenting a broad range of styles and pieces..By and large the weather was on fine form, despite the consistent passing of clouds, it was for the most part sunny and enjoyed by those in attendance. There were certainly plenty of people there enjoying the festivities, presenting a broad age range from kids to adults alike. Additionally Tobacco Dock was a superb venue choice for such an event, the building a Grade 1 listed warehouse, constructed in approximately 1811, offered lots of space, for the many events going on, inside and outside in the fine sunshine along the quayside. So with out any further ado, here is the Street Art of StreetFest 2015.
