Five of the best pieces of street art in East London

ROA cr

Qbic is located in a small patch of East London that’s become a global mecca for street art. Walk just minutes out of the hotel lobby and you will find work by some of the biggest and best street artists in the world. Here are some of the highlights, but keep your eyes peeled as amazing new work goes up all the time.


Major Two - Phlegm cr2

Phlegm, Heneage Street

A number of Stik’s characters adorn the walls around Brick Lane and further around the city. He’s a prolific artist, with his distinctive stickmen present in cities around the world. A 14 metre high stick man is painted on a block of flats off Queensbridge road, but this witty take on multicultarism on Princelet Street is a favourite.

Major Two - Pablo Delgado cr2

Pablo Delgado, Hanbury Street

Wander just a little bit further down Hanbury Street and you will find one of the most charming pieces in the capital: a set of miniature figures standing on the street corner. Pasted there by Pablo Delgado, there are some 50 miniature figures scattered in unsuspecting places around East London.

Major Two - El Mac cr2

El Mac, Hewitt Street

Portrait supremo El Mac’s work can be found on Hewitt Street, where he used frozen spray cans to slow down the speed the ink was propelled. It’s a fine example of the American’s ability to fuse street art and photorealism, representing the key influence of the Chicano and Mexican culture he grew up around in LA.

Major Two - Roa cr2

Roa, Hanbury Street

Belgian Roa is something of a legend in the street art world. He is known for his distinctive and enormous black-and-white paintings, representing animals that can be seen in the area they’re located. The huge bird on Hanbury Street is one of his most famous pieces anywhere.

Major Two - Stik cr2

Stik, Princelet Street

A number of Stik’s characters adorn the walls around Brick Lane and further around the city. He’s a prolific artist, with his distinctive stickmen present in cities around the world.
