Creatives will be find themselves in heaven at this vast emporium just off Brick Lane, which is filled to the brim with thousands of tubes of paint covering a wide variety of quality and prices, as well as paper of every texture and hue, tools, brushes, pens, pencils, crayons, solvents, spray paints, glues, canvases, stretchers, easels, frames and portfolios – in other words, pretty much everything and anything that arty folk might ever need, and at competitive prices too. What’s more, staff are helpful and friendly and there’s a 10 per cent discount for students, making it a first port-of-call for young artists in the making. There’s also a framing shop downstairs, for when you’ve finished that masterpiece.
