Street art London tour with steam156

 

Under its clouds, through its historical or newly build streets, on both sides of river Thames, London is a city which has much to offer both to its inhabitants and to curious tourists. Especially if you are an art enthusiast, you surely won’t miss the National Gallery, the Saatchi Gallery or Tate Modern.

You might know that London is a top destination for many things, including art galleries, but you might not know that this is the place where street art found its home in Europe. In the last few decades, London became one of the most pro-graffiti cities in the world. A street art London tour would reveal you a stage of controversial art work, created by artists as famous as Banksy.

Yes, Banksy is a well-known artist in the street art world, due to his witty graffiti works and also due to the mystery that surrounds his identity. Even if you don’t know much more than that about street art, our London graffiti tours are lead by steam156, a legendary street art artist himself and an expert in his activity. He will take you through old and new street artworks in London made not only by Banksy, but also by other notorious street artists like Solo One, Love Pusher, Twesh, Relay and Wisher.

Our London graffiti tours will help you learn more about this sometimes legal-sometimes illegal way of expressing an artistic feeling and will make street art reach to your heart. Moreover, if you feel an artistic impulse yourself, then don’t forget to bring a can of paint with you.

The interesting thing about taking a street art London tour at different time intervals is that you’ll always have new things to see. What else is street art if not a dynamic and never ending art process? The worlds’ walls are the street artists’ canvases and what was here today might not be here tomorrow. Street artists are using the public space in order to send a message to people who see their work. Or sometimes…just because they have a funny idea. Even so, while walking through the streets of London during our tour you will feel the vibe of the dialogue the artist started with you. The street art you’ll see will always live in your memories and your pictures. So don’t forget your camera!

{All you street art lovers know a tour would not be complete without an Exit Through The Gift Shop. One of the coolest souvenirs from your street art tour will be your own name done in graffiti style on a mini London underground map. You can order it before the tour and we’ll bring to you. Also, be sure to check the other items in our shop.}

Since 50 years ago, when the first modern street art works appeared in New York, meaning mainly graffiti paintings (that authorities erased immediately after), this type of art found its development in our century. During our street art London tour you might see also stencil graffiti, sticker art, installations or even sculptures. So come with us on a London graffiti tour and you’ll see that it is much more fun than at Tate’s!

When most people think of London they think about the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, West End shows, the London Eye and the Queen…but is that really the only things London has to offer?

We know you can find graffiti adorning most buildings, bus stops and train stations but can you tell your Roa from your Jimmy C?
