East London is having a laugh with Martin Ron’s newest mural. I’m sure you’ve never seen the Queen’s Guard quite like this. On Brick Lane at Hanbury Street it looks like this guard got off duty - shedded his official red jacket to show off his Capoeira moves.
Come write on the walls! That’s what The Canvas is for. It started as a project for a body positivity campaign, where people would write very honest thoughts about their bodies on white sofas with a ballpoint pen. But there was a need for a bigger canvas, so eventually The Canvas cafe was born. Every wall has a question that you can answer. I think everything counts a little more than we think.
As an interior designer and street photographer, I always love the idea of incorporating street arts as part of my design. Such as this Grizzly Bear who is seemingly diving to catch some fish on Hanbury Street, Brick Lane (London) by street artist DALeast.
The basement space of The Canvas, where all the magic happens. The book club and a free Friday film night. Theatre events, stand-up comedy, workshops and much more. And on some days it’s just a quiet warm space where you can enjoy some tea and nibble on a biscuit.
