This weekend on a trip to Brick Lane I was lucky enough to catch a 3 day only art show called Kounter Kulture, hosted by the Opus Gallery. Always on the lookout for these art shows since Sheppard Fairey had his major exhibition at the Old Truman Brewery, (which blew me away) I expectantly entered and was well rewarded with a feast of creativity. This urban art show was diverse and exciting with former street artists going legit, Chinese contemporary, recent graduates, prints and 3d work. I had to get my camera out and shoot my favourites, although some turned out a bit blurry and lighting not so good--sorry, but you get the feel. I have put links on the photos for more interesting info about the artists (mouse over pics). There are a few I don't know the names, hopefully will get to know them.
