Browse Street Art And Make Your Own At ME London

Aside from its rooftop offering far-stretching views of the city, one of the most distinctive features of Foster-designed ME London is the giant marble pyramid that houses reception, shooting up from the first floor towards its glass pinnacle inside Radio bar up top. Already a regular backdrop for video projections of star-filled galaxies and floating jellyfish, the hotel is taking things a step further during its street art exhibition ‘The Outside In’, running until August 4. We stopped by for a preview last week.
Five international graffiti writers and street artists (BRK, Christiaan Nagel, Thierry Noir, RUN and Zomby – for those who are well-versed in this particular genre) are displaying their work throughout the hotel’s public spaces, including projection onto the 30-metre high white marble walls. If you’re keen to unleash the inner street artist in you, now is also your chance with a dedicated hotel package.
Available the weekend of July 27 and 28, “A weekend of London Street Art” includes a tour of street art in East London and a practical class to give it your best shot yourself. All protective wear and material is included, with prices at $250 per adult and $100 for children. Book a room for those two nights and you can have one for $380 a night, including breakfast for two and the class . Given that a regular Aura Room at ME London during that weekend runs from $360 a night, you might as well make it an artistic weekend no?
