Some helpful person is labeling the street. Don’t know who is weirder, the Tagger or someone so incensed that they produce a sticker to tell you something you already knew. Made me laugh though!
A great line up for the Whitecross urban art show, the street becomes a gallery for the works of Best Ever , Burning Candy, Carrie Reichardt, David Bray, Dotmasters, Dr D, Filthy Luker, Gavin Turk, Giles Walker, Matt Small, Mysterious Al, Paul Insect, Peter Dunne, Shepherd Fairey, Teddy Baden, Will Barras, Wreckage, Xenz
An amazing TWO day event! Over thirty leading Artists and over ten underground Musicians playing Parisian style on Whitecross Street, East London.

You’ve seen the pics, read the press, now see the video.
The Robin Hood Tax were drumming up support yesterday with Mutate Britain at Cordy house in Shoreditch. An morning press call brought the cameras out on a thankfully sunny day. A small pop up show accompanied the proceedings and can be visited on Saturday and Sunday at Cordy house, Curtain road, Shoreditch. An article can be found here.
Just when you thought the old dog was dead, you find yourself back in cordy house with the usual suspects causing chaos. This time its the Robin Hood Tax , Dr D pasting up the walls outside, Teddy B doing the dog while Pete Dunn and Kevin sort the gallery upstairs. Thursday night see’s an opening of sorts of a like minded bunch supporting something that makes sense….i know advice from the delusional, but cordy house is alive again! Got some stuff upstairs in the show and some on the street below.
