Street Art: Shop Front Letters

These larger than life letters light up the shut shops of the streets of Hackney. Changing the gloomy grey (necessary) metal into the colourful initial of the name of the shop sleeping behind it.

I think they might be a particularly east London thing. I have no idea of the history of these letters, but apparently they are the work of a street artist called Eine. They seem to have the added value of staving off shit tagging too!

Ah, love this Eine collage…
