Tracing Art in South East London

by Elena

Staying next to South London Gallery & Café (a wonderful combination: breakfasts here are especially highly recommended!), ART in the district of Camberwell, South East London is literally on our every doorstep.

I whirl around like an autumn leaf dancing through streets, dashing across lanes, taking turns and – settling down again, for instance at House Gallery & Cafe. Reading a book I picked up in an East London bookstore the day before (“Why People Photograph” by Robert Adams: Nice title, great food for thought!), I still muse at the following quote contained therein: Smart is okay, but lucky is better.

And lucky I was that day! Come and trace South East London Art with me!

The Arts are omnipresent here and literally carved in stone - blogging, of course !

At House Gallery & Cafe, I discover a rather unusual exhibition named "Artists Who Are Waiters".

Halloween makes for art to light up even an ordinary street pub window.

Can facades be called art, too? Modern houses (do exist!) in South East London, on my way to Brixton.

.. However, as a British nostalgic, I opt for the latter: Traditional British brick house beautifully crafted.

And finally, my favourite of all day: Street Art Kiss near Brixton Village in South East London. Steal a fleeting kiss from the city you love!
