Otto Schade: Jack the Ripper 2040;
One of London’s most popular street artists, Otto Schade (OSch) has painted a new mural on a wall off Brick Lane in one of his usual spots. The new mural depicts Jack the Ripper, the notorious serial killer who murdered on the streets of Shoreditch and Spitalfields in the mid and late 1800s. In fact, a couple of the murders attributed to him were found in the streets very close to this mural. This artwork shows the killer who has committed another murder, but many people stand around and photograph or take video of the crime instead of stopping the killer. This is a social message about people being glued to their devices. Street art can be found almost everywhere in London, and it’s free for everyone to enjoy. From Banksy pieces to works by undiscovered artists, we just need to walk around to appreciate London's urban art. When visiting Soho, don’t forget to look out for the seven noses of Soho by Rick Buckley which are concealed across the area. Then head over to Covent Garden, where you can also search for Tim Fishlock's little-known ear sculptures. One of the best areas in London for discovering street art is certainly Shoreditch and Brick Lane, where artwork is known to change on almost a daily basis.
I highly recommend to join a “Street Art Tour” to stumble upon works by many of the best graffiti and stencil artists in the world, combined with a lunch break at the Old Spitalfields Market, open 7 days a week is the original East London market brought to life by the characters and stories of the people that trade there.
