Sweet Toof and the Lost Malapa



Fancy another stroll through east London? Step right up and come this way, let's head towards the Olympics area for some thoroughly un-Olympicness.



Hackney Wick has been a thriving corner for the east's vibrant art scene for some time. Amid and within the vast warehouses is where you can find artists studios and crafter's workshops. Although newcomers to the area will be forgiven for dismissing the area as a dump, take a closer look and you will discover a tapestry of creativity beneath it's seemingly daunting surface.

Personally I like lingering in the area and watching the world go by. I am enthralled by the juxtaposition between the artistry, neglect, post apocalyptic feel and of course the vision of the Olympic park sitting side by side. A strange motley crew.
