Shakespeare Street Art

“Meet me for a coffee in the Swan at the Globe” a friend suggested.  Picnics are usually the order of the day when we visit the Globe and so this was a first visit for me and very nice it is too.  As I ambled from the station to the Swan I spotted this piece of street art that I have not seen before.  Jimmy C painted this portrait of Shakespeare overlooking the re-creation of his famous theatre.  What a perfect Sunday Photo I thought!  Keen readers might remember that Jimmy C’s mural ‘Joe’s Kid’ was a Sunday Photo last year.

    What a fantastic mural! I do love a good piece of street art – they add so much to a cityscape, don’t they?

    It’s an impressive piece. I’ve only seen it at night so thanks for showing me a different view

      I walked the other way along the river a couple of weeks ago and didn’t see it, hard to know how as it’s massive!

    That’s a fabulous painting of William Shakespeare. I don’t think I’ve seen this before – will have to look out for it next time I am in the area 🙂

      I think it appeared late last year as part of the Shakespeare 400 celebrations. But I have walked that way countless times since then and not noticed it until this week!

    Such a lovely collection of vibrant colours, very fitting for near the Globe. I’m sure Shakespeare would be impressed!

    I’ve never seen this before despite walking past The Globe many times. Is is recent? I love it!

      I think it appeared toward the end of 2016

    That looks like a very funky Shakespeare mural there. So vibrant and colourful! 🙂
