I had a field day in Brick Lane last week, stunned by the many beautiful works of art found on every corner. They truly add so much to the environment, a splash of colour and clever shapes that evoke so many thoughts and convey interesting concepts. What I particularly like about street art is that it's not confined to the conformity of an art gallery space, instead free to transcend boundaries and cleverly use the physical environment as its fluid canvas. This quality alone makes it much more accessible to the general public, taking art outside its comfort zone so to speak. I quite like the style of the work pictured above, the expressions split but the emotions working together.
Lately the weather has been beautiful. So beautiful, that I face that familiar internal struggle of attempting to balance study and sunshine in those final bittersweet weeks. Naturally sunshine is the stronger contender, pulling me down to the riverside with my friends. Girls watched boys sing songs, we discussed our summer plans. The perfect lazy day.
