Day 5. Before there was a @stolenspacegallery there was The Outside Institute. This gallery was one of the first galleries that showcased a huge collective of street artists from the UK. I remember going into the gallery and asking if I could talk to @dface_official . The guy at the counter said that he wasn’t available. Minutes later someone came out from the back studio to talk to me about my research project. I asked him if he was D*Face @dface_official He smiled and said “Maybe”.

Day 5. I had a bigger goal when I arrived to London. I wanted to meet one person and one person only. Banksy. During my time with Blek he asked “So have you met him yet?” I knew exactly who he was referring to. During my tour of the East End with Pure Evil we ran into several iconic Banksy pieces but even after all my efforts I was never able to meet the man himself.

Day 5. Pure Evil’s @pureevilgallery secret haven for artists was unlike anything I had ever seen. The abandoned factory complex had trees and plants growing inside with a completely open roof and art everywhere!! Swoon @swoonhq had recently made a stop at the complex and above you can see a small glimpse of one of her beautiful wheatpaste posters along the ledge.
