Egle, Hackney Wick

I moved to London from Lithuania 4 years ago. I was studying fine art, then I switched to BA Drawing course in Camberwell College of Arts. Since the third day I came to UK I worked in Camden market selling all kinds of stuff. Then due to issues with money I had to find a job in the pub, so I was able to work at night after uni. Anyway, after studies I want to move to Poland to a village as I am not the city girl. Oh Hackney…. I was living there for three months and it was like a fairytale. Very industrial and beautiful space. I find it very inspiring and full of opportunities…. the most amazing is the praying people in the warehouses. It’s some church or community … very spectacular.
