Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park Environmental Street Art

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Last spring, street artist Louis Masai headed up Endangered13, an environmental street art painting jam that took place (largely over a weekend) on Ackroyd Drive near Tower Hamlets Cemetery park near Mile End tube station. I visited the event on both days (HumanNature Endangered13 Street Art Paint Jam, Day 2 and HumanNature Endangered13 Street Art Paint Jam) in order to see the progress, although a few of the murals were not yet complete when I visited on the second day. After seeing additional posts on Twitter from Bablu Miah about new environmental street art taking place last summer and this spring, I decided to have a wander back to Mile End to see the new work.

I visited in April, near the anniversary of the Endangered13 paint jam a year ago. I discovered several new pieces painted in the archways and was able to see the other pieces finished. I was reminded of the good memories that I had a year ago when I watched the painting unfold, and it was one of my most memorable events last spring. (Some of the artists at last year's event included Louis Masai, ATM, Andy Council, Jonesy, Vibes, Jim Vision, Xeno, Carrie Reichardt, Faunagraphic, and Fiyas.)

Bablu Miah led the new phase of painting and enlisted a new team of artists and sponsors, which included Forest Recycling and Global Arts Supplies (who donated the paint). I've photographed the new and original art.

I suggest giving Ackroyd Drive a visit if you have not been to see the street art already as there are some really great pieces here.
