If you live in East London, you may have noticed some very colourful floral artwork is currently adorning the streets.
Until this Sunday 23rd December, there is an exhibition of orchid inspired art at the Village Underground in Shoreditch.
It’s the brainchild of Art of Life, a group of Dutch pot orchid growers who’d like to raise awareness about the versatility of these exotic plants.
The exhibition comprises of a collection of four pieces of original artwork by graffiti collective Graffiti Kings, a well-known street art company.
Each panel of art has been created to look as if a hole has been punched in the brick wall to expose the inside of a home. And there you can see different types of orchid plants in pots, placed in each room.
Below, you can see images of each of the four panels…
If you’d like to visit the exhibition, the artwork is on the exterior walls of the cultural space on the Great Eastern Street side of Village Underground by Holywell Lane, Shoreditch, London, EC2A 3PQ.
And if you go along tomorrow (Friday, 21st December), 60 orchids are being given away from 11am. All you need to do is take a photo of the artwork and post it on Twitter with the #floralfriday hashtag.
If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning a trip for two to the Netherlands (which will include a visit to an orchid grower), Art of Life are running a competition on their Facebook page. All you need to do is simply ‘Like’ their page.
