Graffiti in London

There is an underpass in London near Waterloo station where the management has decided to allow Grafitti artists to express themselves.

There was recently a grafitti event, I think it was called the 'Cans Festival Graffiti in Waterloo 2008', and it was arranged by two quite well known graffiti artists Blek Le Rat & Bansky.

The art has been there for a while and unfortunately by the time I got to taking photos and a lot of secondary tagging had already taken place, but there is a lot of very cool art in there and as it is evolving over time it is the kind of place that you can visit time after time.

Thanks for sharing this part of London with us.
It is an 'off the beaten track' view and one we would not usually get from the travel brochers.
I liked them all.
I assume that the original pieces were those in black and white.
Did the artists use spray cans only?
Some are very intricate eg the kissing faces.
Interesting.
