2012 Olympic games: Graffiti Street Artist at South Bank
I met this young and creative street artist in South Bank while creating a new Graffiti inspired by a French movie.
He is a student from south east London and spray paint artist and shared with me his opinions about the Olympic Games and opening ceremony.
He gets inspired by follows other artist on the internet and by learning from street art found in the Brick Lane area in East London, his unique artwork attracted many Olympic games' visitors who were enjoying the sun near the river.
This area of London is called South Bank, which is a long walk path next to the river Thames near the National Theatre that is full of restaurants, coffee shops and art. This particular stretch is famous amongst the skateboarding, the BMX bikes community as well as Graffiti artists. It is a location that was built mainly for this purpose by the government to showcase such art form.
South Bank is a beautiful riverside stretch in the heart of London in the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, following the Thames from Lambeth to Blackfriars. It's the perfect destination for a relaxing stroll and to stumble across something new.
The packed programme of art, theatre, exhibitions, music, film and free events means South Bank is an inspiring place to explore for all ages.
