Wow it’s already turned February. Which means my birthday’s coming soon, I really thought things would have progressed much faster by now. Ah well, have to keep going.
I was around Shoreditch yesterday, and whilst there I thought I’ll take a look inside the Kemistry Gallery…but unfortunately by the time I got there it was closed!! Whilst meandering my way through the side streets (I had a vague memory of how the streets mapped out) I spotted several creative hubs here and there, ‘oh that’s where that is…that’s the place I heard about the other day’. There’s something quite magical about seeing these creative places lit up in the dark, it’s buzzing, but quietly, whether the creative place is a agency with its people still working on their macs and projection screens, an ‘arty’ cafe or a small designer lighting store. I felt that they were working hard because they enjoyed what they were doing, and it almost looked like they were encouraging me to keep trying. Timely, I needed an uplift these days.
There’s always something new up in Shoreditch, and this is what I found yesterday.
What you see walking up from one side
and from the other side…
Apparently, it was painted by street artist ROA.
