As you approach Rivington street either from Shoreditch or Old Street Tube you walk past a myriad of cool bars, night clubs and cutting edge shops. The diversity of East End life is there on every corner. Tucked away is the wonderful Grade II listed Tramshed restaurant on the corner of Charlotte Street. It’s façade of yellowing brick reveals within the jewel in east London’s crown; a permanent Damien Hirst installation. It is staggering in its monumental presence. The formaldehyde gently ripples as you look through the glass box. To some it is unnerving, to others the epitomy of the YBAs far reaching global domination of the art scene. As with most venues in this part of town the gallery is hidden away, to be found on the coolest websites and name checked by young bloggers and hip trendsetters.
