Wet Paint

Wet Paint

This week-end, together with thousands of other people of all ages and background (I saw a BBC political journalist, whose name escapes me, together with his family and also caught a glimpse of a former flatmate), I visited the darker recesses of Waterloo Station where The Cans Festival was taking place.

Leake Street, a dismal little street under the station itself had been transformed for the bank holiday week-end into a street art gallery.

The most famous artist on show was by far our local Banksy but there were people from all over showing either full on frescos or more humble efforts. Members of the public were also invited to wield the cans.

I went there on Sunday and Monday morning (and will probably return in a few days to see how the images fair when left to their own device) and took about 200 pictures, a selection of which can be viewed here.

Bye Bye Ken

And thank you for everything you did for London and its diverse population.
