This is a quick post as I wanted to share this beautiful Bansky (or Bansky-style) street stencil which I spotted on Upper Street in Islington. I love spotting street art like this and always try to take a photo of it, when I see it. It reminds me that art should be every-day occurances and for everyone, not just for the few. Maybe this is why I love statues and sculptures so much.
I had actually been to the Estoric Gallery earlier in the day, which is a small gallery I had never been to before. It was just the right size for me. I find that I get sensory overload if I look at too much stuff at once, because I just find it a lot to absorb. So visiting a gallery like this is always preferable to me than a huge one (although you could go back more than once!). It also made me think of the Tate Modern which has this great sign above it:
I love the fact that it has this huge sign on the building which can be seen from the Millennium Bridge - it hopefully encourages more people to visit it.
Here are some shots of the New River where I went for a walk yesterday, after a visit to the Estoric Collection which is a small gallery housing Italian art.
How often do you visit art galleries? Does art feature in your life on a regular basis? What are your views on street art? I'd love to hear what you think. You can leave me a comment below or connect on Facebook or Twitter.
