Next time you go for walkies, keep your eyes peeled. London’s street art cup runneth over with pooch portraits taking over the city. We’re throwing you a bone and sharing where you can spot the best murals around town (plus save our handy map below!).

Attack of the 50ft Chihuahua! UK duo Irony and Boe are taking over London with this gigantic mural on the side of a 1960’s block of flats on Chrisp Street, right by Chrisp Street Market. It’s so huge you can also spot it from the All Saints DLR Station. Where? Chrisp St, E14.

Street artist Teddy Baden is as obsessed with dogs – or as he calls them, “hairy aliens who live amongst us” – as much as we are! We love his mural For the Love of Dog showing two rugrats painting with a sheepdog…Dulux…geddit? Where? Banner St, EC1.
