Dark Angel, Deadly Dragon – A wall in West Lonodon

Irish born Street Artist FinDAC has created a wonderfully unique and bright style for his contemporary art. He began with street art, but has now extended into mix media in order to make an honest living. The artist, who lives and works in London, creates large murals of Geisha like women, inspired by the 19-century art movement Aestheticism.

From Sewerditch to Shoreditch: past, present and future


The bells of St Clements chimed “oranges and lemons” and those of Old Bailey tolled “when will you pay me?” While the evasive great bell of Bow did not know, those of Shoreditch gave a definite answer: “When I grow rich.”

In the 18th and 19th centuries, the prospect of an affluent Shoreditch proved a feat of the imagination. Steeped in poverty, crime and prostitution, this product of city overspill was an area to avoid. Today, though, Shoreditch constitutes a popular and fashionable part of London, bursting with boutiques, art galleries and bars. Based in Hoxton Square, Firedog delved further into the area’s past to draw parallels with its present.
