Brick Lane E.1

Working on brick lane I get to see loads of exciting street art which makes my lunch breaks a lot more exciting! The colours and humorous images which dress the walls of this area of London create a playful style. Just how a great fabric print can lift an outfit and cheer up your day, so do these walls.

 

Clashing colours and prints emulate the designer Peter Pilotto.

And a mix of bold, block colours have a similar style to Michael Van Der Ham.

Louise Gray has a talent for mixing bold and bright colours together and combing clashing  prints to create the very playful style.

German-born artist Jan Vormann, 27, has spent the past three years travelling the world repairing crumbling walls and monuments with Lego. And he wants you to do the same.

His “Dispatchwork” began in 2007 in the small village of Bocchignano, Italy, as part of the contemporary art festival 20 Eventi. Developing the work in situ, he became intrigued by the makeshift repairs that had been made to thecrumbling walls. The approach favoured function over appearance, reminding Vormann of the haphazard Lego designs created by children.

The artist has worked with volunteers ranging in age from three to 40 years, and his work has captured imaginations worldwide. From Brazil to London, to Germany and the US, other “Dispatchers” are imitating him — look out for their efforts.
