When you purchase the book, take a look at Clet Abrahams work. His work reflects humour with an underlying concern with how signs are plaguing the streets unnecessarily, and how they are visually an eye sore. He believes signs are dominating us and reflect a culture that is misguided and controlled. Abrahams makes us aware of the things that dominate our world while putting a smile on our face at the same time.

New street art is taking shape and is influencing London and its surroundings. It decorates the city and makes it look aesthetically pleasing, street art is part of every city.

Claude Crommelin’s book displays why it is important to recognise the creatives of London and why it should be appreciated. It makes us feel happy on a gloomy day and it gets our mind pondering on how the artist came up with that idea.

The cliché you find with creative London is that people tell you about the undiscovered places in the capital that you ought to visit, when you’d probably stumble upon them inevitably.

So, why not be really savvy and have the knowledge of being able to know specific street artists around parts of the city.
