Street Art From The Whitecross Street Party 2015

Yesterday in EC1 the Whitecross Street Party returned to London, on this occasion for just one day only. The event brought together a diverse and eclectic range of entertainment and events with something for everyone to enjoy. This small street which is normally rather quiet was rammed with people throughout the duration of yesterdays party. Accompanied by fine sunny weather there was several stages dotted along the street playing a broad range of musical stylings, street performers, stalls owners and a food market ensuring that you were guaranteed to find something to satisfy your requirements and this certainly shined through in the happy and jovial atmosphere that permeated through all those in attendance.

However our main focus was on the Live Painting, organised by Teddy Baden, that took place through the day, and there was a great range of art on offer from Street Artists and more studio based artists alike, affording us here the opportunity to witness works from a range of artists we are already very much familiar with and admire, as well as bringing a whole host of artists previously unknown to us.

The works from the event will be on display in Whitecross Street for the next six weeks, so if you are in the area and didn’t attend the event yesterday, be sure to head along and check out the finished works while you can.
