Braithwaite Street, Shoreditch

Most of Braithwaite Street is under railway tracks next to Shoreditch High Street station on the London Overground.   The south end of the street used to be called Wheler Street and appears as such on google maps.  Photos taken September 2016.

Jerome Street graffiti, Shoreditch

Just east of Commercial street in Tower Hamlets, Shoreditch is Jerome Street, one of many little streets in the area.  The old home of Godfrey Phillips Ltd, tobacco and cigarette manufacturers is at the corner of Jerome and Commercial.   The lower level with the red brick and large windows is now a restaurant.

a view up Jerome street, old industrial brick buildings.

below: It’s a bird, it’s a plane…. no it’s suit wearing mallards with proper footwear.   Face the Strange.

three face the strange stickers, men with mallard duck heads and wings and wearing suits, are flying

below: Go fly your kite with this cute teddy bear by unify.

a teddy bear paste up or stencil sits on the sidewalk. he is holding a kite string in his paw and the kite is above him on the wall. A green sticker says go fly your kite. The signature says unify. the word unify is written many times in the kite in different colours to make a design on the kite.

below: An assortment of stickers and paste ups.   A man with Mickey Mouse ears – Magic Kingdon, Join the Club.   Three of the posters are in Italian – one is mostly obscured by the skull, the one below the skull translates to “I have the memory of a goldfish” and the one above Mickey ears is a longer description of how this person can’t describe is love for another.  The poetry is the work of Movimento per l’Emancipazione della Poesia.

many pieces of street art, including a man wearing mickey mouse ears, a large grinning skull in yellow and orange, and poems written on posters in Italian.

below: A tribute to Prince

a paste up street art piece in tribute to the musician Prince, his head in profile in a heart with purple accents

below: Another assortment of stickers and paste ups.  Another Join the Club, Mickey mouse based paste up – this time with “Where dreams come true”.  Also, more Face the Strange but instead of flying ducks, we have fruit portraits.  Do men look better with grapes or oranges instead of faces?  I like the matching gloves on strawberry man.   Lastly, I think that’s Queen Elizabeth in the pink and blue poster, along with I made you a moron.  Think of it what you will.  I suspect that the Rebel Rabbet sticker was added later.

stickers and paste up street art on a metal box and wall on a street corner including 6 posters by Face the Strange where men's portraits have fruits instead of heads, orange, grapes, strawberry, banana, and apple. Two other paste ups as well.

below: Stick figures with something to say, even if it’s things like “Danger is only safe in pairs”, “Once all this was just a memory” and “You can’t paint a hen”.

black outlined stick figures with white word bubbles, two people and a dog.

around Bernard Shaw

The Bernard Shaw, in a building built in 1895, is a pub on Richmond Street South in Dublin.  I had heard that there was some street art in the vicinity, so a detour was made to that part of Dublin.  The building looks like it needs a coat of paint!

an old black building, the Bernard Shaw pub, built 1895, with street art on either side of it.

below: A brightly coloured bird flies on one side of the pub

Perhaps that’s him on the wall above?

below: “Our bodies, our lives, our choice” mural.  Part of the “Repeal the 8th” campaign, an abortion rights campaign to call for a referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment to the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland.  The 8th amendment criminalizes abortion in all cases except where to continue a pregnancy would result in death of the mother.

small street art painting of a man's face high on a wall

In the same area there was a car park…  or construction site…  or just a series of walls covered with street art and graffiti.  Not much of it was noteworthy but here are a few pictures just the same.

construction hoardings covered with street art and graffiti with cars parked beside them.

below: This one accompanies a happy birthday and I love you message written for Angela, presumably written by Caolan.

graffiti that says angela & caolan. Angela is in pink letters and caolan is in blue. the e in angela is a lock and the L in caolan is a key. The key fits into the lock.
