Some Photos around Rivington Street, Shoreditch, London

Rivington street scary
I miss Shoreditch. I miss street art. We don’t get much in Chicago. (At least, none that I’ve seen.) Luckily, last week, I stayed at the Shoreditch Crown Plaza and Rivington Street was my daily commute. “Scary” is under the bridge by Shoreditch High Street. (Anyone know what it’s supposed to mean? Maybe it’s just branding for some agency?) Here are some of the other things I saw.

iPhone art

Rivington street old lady
At the old Foundary, by Great Eastern Street.

Rivington street ed without the r
I cut the R out of this photo. It just didn’t fit. Going east on Rivington Street from Old Street.

Rivington street diner
Love the sign for the Diner on Curtain Road. This is the sign on Rivington Street. Technically not street art, but I still liked it.

Rivington street characters
Just some characters.

Rivington street funny
Funny blue plaque. Going west from Shoreditch high street. South side of the street.

Rivington street einstein
Hello, Einstein. (I saw another one of these on Brick Lane, as I was walking north from the Truman Brewery.)

And goodbye, London.

That is not iPhone art. It is by Xylo, a political street artist and is a comment on the high number of worker suicides at the iPhone factory as reported in the media at the time.

Awesome. Who knew? I suppose whether it's art or a statement will depend upon your perspective. As a consumer with no background knowledge, I call it art. Sure maybe I thought it was a statement on mankind's dependence on technology, but that's about it.
