Hadn't been into flowers east for a long time. Even though it's in easy reach, somehow it has a stigma 
of mediocre art. Going in I was immediately postively surprised by the large space and scale of the 
pictures.  The paintings have a whiff of the old school, the sort of drudgy brown work I imagine flowers 
showing, but are actually surprisingly good. They have a range of tricks to keep you interested, photo 
bits and realistic bits and concrete bits and graffiti bits and little nice scenes painted over the tower 
blocks like views. Anyway looking around the luxurious gallery space and assistant desk which has a 
sort of built in library, I was a bit disconcerted by the grubbiness of some of the doors, a lick of white 
paint would surely improve the situation. The press release was surprisingly powerfully written too, 
even slightly emotional.

Hey everyone, give Fowers east a chance, go in!
