Street Art...

Shoreditch is a neighbourhood in London where the walls have been taken by graffiti artists. Although these interventions were once considered acts of vandalism, today they have become a particular form of expressions, admired and respected.

Shoreditch used to be an industrial area, but in the 90s, most of those industries moved away, leaving behind hundreds of empty warehouses, which became house and workshop for new emerging artists. Of course, those young and provocative new tenants soon took to the walls.
In the 70s, philosopher Gianni Vattimo had predicted that art would no longer exist as specific  phenomenons, but in a general aesthetic existence. Everything would be invaded by images and by an explosion of art outside the limits of traditional institutions.
This is why today it's not necessary to visit a museum or art gallery to see an artwork: we live visual experiences all the time, on the streets, in the media, in social networks.
Shoreditch is the living example of this. Its street art is monumental, detailed, exquisite, a delight for passersby, although only a few, considered emblematic, are protected. Most of them will get lost when another graffiti artist decides to produce a new painting.
