Street Art — Hackney Wick

Insect

We at Hookedblog followed the path along London's Regents canal all the way out to Hackney Wick in East London yesterday to visit some friends with our camera in tow. With the London 2012 Olympics Games fast approaching and the Olympic Stadium and village located just across the canal from the artistic community of the Wick, it is highly likely that the whole area will be scrubbed clean and redeveloped for the tourists just ahead of the opening of the games. If you get the chance be sure and visit this wonderfully creative neighbourhood before this happens there is still lots of great street art and graffiti to see along the canal and streets leading to the Hackney Wick Overground train station.. Here is a selection of some of the street art and graffiti that we captured on our short visit.

UPDATE 10 February 2012:

We have read reports yesterday via twitter, that the local council have begun their clean up operation of the Hackney Wick neighbourhood already, with the empty yard next to Hackney Wick Station having now been white washed of all the vibrant work that once adorned the large scale wall. If this is the case hopefully some of the artists will tale this opportunity to reclaim this space again and hit back with some fresh new work.
