This impressive piece of lettering is the work of Ben Eine, well-known for his alphabetical enhancements of walls and shutters around London, the UK and now the world. It reads “Extortionists”, a partner piece to a work called “Protagonists” on the other side of Ebor Street. Eine has recently been in the news thanks to his new mural for London’s Olympic Park.
You need to walk along these murals to experience them in their full glory – emphasising that the best place to see street art is always out in the streets (or at least outside, in the case of the Olympic Park). If you want to do some more Eine exploring, check out this map of his lettering around Shoreditch, or come and join us on one of our London street art and graffiti walking tours.
