This is two figures from the artwork 'Three Travellers by a Pond' an artwork in the calm oasis of The Phoenix Garden, in central London by street artist Stik. The garden is the last of the Covent Garden community gardens created by local residents on a former bomb site in 1984. Stik is one of London's most distinctive street artists, his simple black and white figures are constructed from six lines and two dots. #stik #stikstudio #phoenixgarden #hackneystreetartist #londonstreetart #urbanart #graffitiart #contemporaryart #streetart #streetartlondon #publicart #streetstyle #communitygarden #streetartphotography #londonist #ldn #londonlife #mural #londoncitylife #culture #artwork #streetartlovers #creativearts #outinlondon #londonlove #keepexploringartist

This figure is at the Foundry in Old Street, Hackney, east London, a hub of the underground art movement in the 1900s. In 2009 the Foundry was evicted when the building was sold, the figure in this mural by Stik looks back at this creative space being evicted.

I love succulents and cacti for their sculptural forms and low care maintenance regime. The color variation of succulents seems almost endless: blue-green, chartreuse, pink, red, yellow, white, burgundy, almost black, variegated, and more. The leaves can be rounded, needlelike, berrylike, ruffled, or spiky. #cacti #succulent #succulentarrangement #succulentgarden #indoorgarden #plants #jungle #indoorplants #greenery #thepottedcactus #instasucculent #plantlove #plantdesign #zen #natureinspired #botanical #fresh #plantsindecor #urbanjungle #light #interiorstyling #containergardening #livingroomdecor #urbanliving #decoratingwithplants #urbangarden

I took this photo of 'Live East, Die Young' by the celebrated street artist Banksy at the 'Cans Street Art' festival organised by him in the abandoned tunnel on Leake Street, Waterloo back in 2008. The festival's name is a play on the famous French film extravaganza 'The Cannes Film Festival' #cansstreetartfestival2008 #leakestreetarches #leakestreetgraffititunnel #banksy #leakestreettunnel #graffitiart #leakestreetgraffiti #londonstreetart #streetart #urbanart #instafollowers #streetartfestival #contemporaryart #streetartlondon #publicart #streetstyle #streetartphotography #streetartist #londonstreetart  #londonist #ldn #londonlife #mural #londoncitylife #culture #artwork #streetartlovers #creativearts #outinlondon #londonlove

'Follow your Dreams' is the work of Mr Brainwash, the name used by French-born, Los Angeles based street artist Thierry Guetta. A few years ago he staged a pop-up Gallery at the old Royal Mail sorting office in Drury Lane, Covent Garden. This artwork of the Queen and her corgi was one of the many artworks on show. #mrbrainwash #mrbrainwashexhibition #theirryguetta #urbanart #art #contemporaryart #urbanart #graffiti #streetart #hiphopculture #hiphop #graffitiart #graffitiartist #streetstyle ##streetlife #wallart #hiphopartist #hiphoplife #ldn #shepardfaireyart #artphotography #graphicdesigner #muralart #mural #muralartist #artworks #keepexploring

I took this photo of a narrow boat from a bridge spanning over the Regents Canal in north, London. The canal which is eight and a half miles long links the Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal in the west, to the Limehouse Basin and the River Thames in east London. There has been a real boom in canal boat living as a solution to the crisis of enough affordable housing in London today. #regentscanal #eastlondon #westlondon #londonlife #london #affordablehousing #lovelondon #londoncanals #londonwalks #londoner ##londontown #canal #instalondon #narrowboat #water #canalboats #mylondon #towpath #outinlondon #littlevenice #travel #houseboat #houseboats #bridge #bridges #urbanexploring #canalwalks #boatlife #boatlifestyle #landscapephotography
