Angry Dan Street Art Treasure Hunt

Angry Dan Street Art Treasure Hunt in Walthamstow
Poet and painter, Angry Dan, is making a gallery show with a difference. His London Borough of Limericks exhibition extends beyond the walls of 1B Window Gallery onto the streets with a collection of 9 murals in the surrounding area. 
Together, the street paintings will become a treasure hunt of limericks, intended to “inspire others to keep this poetic form alive”. 
The gallery will display more of his limerick paintings, plus a new illustrated limerick, prints of which will be given away to everyone who finds all 9 of the murals. 
An ardent limericist, Dan writes all the poems he paints, and teaches limerick writing workshops at local primary schools.

“Whenever I've a spare moment, I always try to write one, and I can honestly say I've not been bored once since the day I started”. 
Eight of the murals were commissioned for Waltham Forest's year as London Borough of Culture. Dan says, “Limericks are folklore, so they evolve as they pass between people and through time. I love traditional limericks, but I also want to introduce some new ideas of my own. Street art is my way of passing them on.”
