east london graffiti

One of my favourite areas to go to is Shoreditch, a gritty and urban edge place that i’m in love with!!!!! Most walls, lamppost’s and front shops are covered in awesome graffiti and dope stickers. The art on the walls change continuously , always something new to see every time you visit. Not only that, there’s many rad rooftop bars and independent vintage stores to visit.    

I keep coming back to this area, starting from when I was 17 years old, going on a trip with my Art&Design class back in college, and fell in love with this artsy place. Now i’m almost 21 and still come here like its the first time. I take my camera (I use a Canon EOS 100D) atleast one buddy and just purely roam around with no exact plan whatsoever…..  

Pictures above, I took in April this year of  ‘Cargo London’ a cool and atmospheric place for bands and DJ’S with global menu and a garden Chillout.

Before leaving the UK, Borondo had the opportunity to work his magic on a boat somewhere along River Lee in East London.
The talented Spanish artist painted the roof with a signature image showing his remix of the iconic “Ophelia” painting by John Everett Millais. This piece was painted in collaboration with Carmen Maín.

“Vimes nodded. You ignored the writing on the walls at your peril. Sometimes it was the city’s way of telling you, if not what was on its bubbling mind, then at least what was in its creaking heart.”

Thud by Terry Pratchett
