The London International Paste-up Festival is returning to the walls of the East End this October after a hugely successful launch last year.

Over 300 artists from around the world will have their artwork pasted on walls in the Brick Lane area as part of large, colourful collages.

Visitors will be able to see the works starting on Thursday 20 October either on their own or as part of a guided tour on Sunday 23 October at 14:00.

There will also be an accompanying street art market featuring the work of many of the festival’s artists at 45 Hanbury Street, London E1 5JP from Thursday 20 – Sunday 23 October 2022.

The festival will open with a private viewing on Thursday 20 October at 6pm with live paste-up art and music from DJ E-Kay.

Over the weekend, there will also be pasteup workshops, video projections and an urban market with stalls run by well known street art artists.

The LIPF offers many street artists from around the world a chance to travel to London vicariously through their art. The collages that will be created are ephemeral works that will quickly fade and change, so people will only have a limited time to see them.

Aranzazu Perez, the founder of the international art collective, said: “After our first LIPF last year, we have seen how this under-appreciated form of street art has grown in terms of media attention with paste-up artists being invited to take part in many different street art festivals. We are hoping that this year’s festival will be even more successful than last year’s in bringing art from around the world to London’s walls free of charge.”
