Hundreds of neighbours in an east London neighbourhood have used their windows to create an outdoor art gallery during lockdown.

Homerton and Clapton’s Window Wanderland is the latest in a series of worldwide events where residents are encouraged to show off their creative skills through displays on the fronts of their homes.

Artworks visible across the area’s windows included depictions of King Kong, alien invaders and dinosaurs, as well as numerous tributes to the NHS.

Others took the opportunity to show solidarity with the community, with messages such as ‘love your neighbour’ and ‘choose love’.

One resident even took the brief one step further and lit up their car window with a cartoon of the rainbow flag covered in birds.

Organisers of the four-day event in the borough of Hackney, which is centred around Valentine’s Day, said more than 250 households had taken part.

Many have shared their creations on social media with the hashtag #lightupclapton.

The event is free but those who are able have been encouraged to offer donations to the local Round Chapel, which offers vulnerable people hot meals, advice and other forms of support.
