Birds Never Look into the Sun Before the Day is Done

Something, something, Bon Jovi reference, something.

Looking back over some recent posts, I realised that I did a post or two about the recent visit of Clet Abraham to Dublin, but haven't really shown too many of his pieces here in London.

Back in 2014, I went on a few strolls around London with the specific goal of cataloging as many of his altered signs as I could. His work tends to appear in clusters, a few streets in the West End, all around Brick Lane, near Great Ormond St Children's Hospital (a bit of a bizarre location I admit), etc, so if you see one you can be pretty sure that there will be a few more nearby.

Unlike Dublin where the Council reacted pretty quickly and set to work removing them, most of these in London have survived and can still be seen.

Something, something, some sort of pun on the word 'stock', something.

Something, something, controlled greetings, something.

Something, something, Braveheart quote, something.

Something, something, more bird stuff, possibly a 'parting shot' reference, something.
