On Monday morning I had the opportunity of revisiting the East Village in Stratford in order to checkout the new Neighbours sculptures by artist Piers Dubois de Saran of Shipshape Art. The sculptures will be joining the two sculptures pictured below known as ‘Little Boy’ and ‘Old Woman’ which came from the clean up after the London riots in 2011 and the idea that “if every man would sweep his own doorstep, the city would soon be clean”.
If you remember in a previous post, I had the opportunity to go on a tour of the East Village development. A lot has changed since then, Chobham Academy is now open and some of the residents have already moved in. In March Queen Elizabeth Park will be opening to the public to enjoy the velopark, aquatic centre and acres of green space. I’m quite looking forward to when all the rest of the people and shops arrive, then it will really feel alive.
