This is Belgian street art master ROA's most complex mural in London. Located in a secluded car park in Bethnal Green, it is also the hardest to find. 

The Village Underground Wall 
Holywell Lane, EC2 
All year round 

Each month a different international street artist is invited to paint this prestigious 128 square metre wall in the heart of Shoreditch, East London. This is Italian street artist RUN's wall from August 2013. 

Stik 
Pitfield Street, N1

Stik's simple and whimsical figures have become a feature of East London in recent years. This piece is entitled 'Art Thief'. 

Phlegm
Barry Road, Dulwich, SE22 
May 2013 

For the Dulwich Street Art Festival: Baroque the Streets, international street artists were invited to recreate paintings from Dulwich Picture Gallery's permanent Baroque era collection on the walls around Duwlich. This piece is Phlegm's interpretation of Poussin's 17th-century work The Triumph of David.  

Thierry Noir 
Rivington Street, EC2 
February 2013 

Legendary Berlin Wall artist Thierry Noir visited London earlier this year and painted a number of works around East London. He is renowned for painting 18 miles of the Berlin Wall illegally during the 1980s — a true forerunner of the modern street art movement.
