The experience

Hi, I'm Domenica - an urban art lover and expert. I’ve completed my PhD with a thesis on the impact of Street Art on local communities and have made a career out of art. I love exploring the city, discovering its hidden art, and showing how beautiful London is to travellers from all over the world.

Join me on this experience and you'll discover what happens when street art moves inside a gallery. We'll find out how artists translate their work from the street, in order to adapt it and interact with the white walls of a gallery.

We’ll start our journey at Stolenspace Gallery near Brick Lane. From there, we’ll visit a few other urban art galleries in Shoreditch, and explore their ever-changing exhibitions.

See you soon!

MD was simply phenomenal. Not only we re-discovered our own city but got a fair amount of knowledge about street Art.

MD showed us a good spread of street art pieces, explained the difference and gave a great background not only about each artist but about the relationships between them. Even though originally we thought 4 hours would be very long, time flew by and we would easily spent more time.

Needless to say I am definitely recommending this tour to friends and colleagues and will surely take some of the other street art tours.

I have to say I am a street art addict and even if I live in London and I go there as soon as have time, I thought I had to have a guided walking tour. A great thank you to MD, she was very informative and pointed out little pieces you wouldn't normally recognize and would easily walk by. Such knowledge and passion for the subject and really got us to open our eyes to our surroundings. Street art is hiding from the footpath to the rooftops and anywhere in between. Highly recommended!

You don't really expect to get a PhD for a tour guide, but we got one. MD is very knowledgeable, interesting and fun. Knows neighborhood intimately. After you fish a river you never look at it the same way, after you see the art people are doing you never look at a city street the same way. One of the best things we did in London.
