Hundreds of Londoners turned their windows into an outdoor art gallery during the lockdown.

Colorful dinosaurs, aliens and touching tributes to the NHS come to life at night in Homerton and Clapton.

The neighborhoods of East London have joined the global Window Wanderland range, encouraging people to get creative when they get stuck indoors.

Some took the opportunity to show solidarity with the community with messages such as “love your neighbor” and “choose love”.

One resident even went a step further and lit his car window with a rainbow flag covered with birds.

The four day event in the Hackney neighborhood inspired more than 250 households to join the fun.

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

The event is free, but attendees are encouraged to make donations to the local Round Chapel, which provides hot meals, advice, and support to those in need.
