[ Apr.2015 ] There is an area called Shoreditch in East London.
It used to be a shabby poor area and there used to be cheap leather shops here and there until about 20 years ago, but now it is a trendy zone where creative young people get together.
The speciality here is fraffiti.
Many of them are too good to be called graffiti, so they are murals.
When we were walking, we came across the people who were working on a new mural.
Apparently they plan the picture beforehand, but when they paint, there is no sketch and they just paint directly.
One of my friends raised a voice, ” The picture has completely changed since I was here a month ago! “.
So the life of the graffiti seems short, even if they paint elaborately.
As a graffiti artist, Banksy is very famous, but Stik who started working around here is another world famous artist.
