In pictures: Graffiti artists tell stories of young homeless people in East London


A group of graffiti artists have been enlisted by Depaul UK, the youth homelessness charity, to create street art that tells homeless young peoples’ stories to help them off the streets.

Each artwork gives an insight into the factors that saw them end up on the streets.  

Young homeless people were interviewed and their real life stories were used to inspire the works, which are sited in Dalston and Shoreditch in East London. 

The collaboration is part of a campaign called "Don’t Let Their Stories End on The Streets". As well as the physical street art, the campaign involves a ‘digital wall’ featuring the artworks at the dedicated website.
