The art displays a brick decorated with authentic street art from Bricklane artists over the years. The gutter pipe attached to the brick has black liquid pouring into a puddle shaped as the borough of Shoreditch. A silhouette of a businessman falls from the gutter with a ten-pound note reflecting the brick in the black liquid. Bricklane is a tribute to graffiti and street artists whose works decorate the unique Shoreditch and Bricklane in London. For decades, spray painters, taggers and fine artists have created art directly onto buildings and exteriors on the streets for public display. Their creativity has contributed to the culture of this once diverse and multicultural area. Unfortunately, in more recent times, the once disregarded street art and culture are now being commoditised. Shoreditch is now gentrified. As money moves in, authenticity moves out, what's left is a polished version of what was once an open art gallery for the people made by the people. 

DESCRIPTION - The freedom of art lives on Bricklane, the shadow of Shoreditch awaits gentrification and monetisation of the free.
