At the weekend we here at London Calling Blog were delighted to see the creation of the second work in our local area of Penge, SE20, with a beautiful work placed up by Street Artist Morgandy, put up with a little support from us. It’s been a month since Artista kicked off the project with her delightful work also in Maple Road (covered here) and Morgandy has certainly added his own mark to area. Shutters can be a tricky business, not suiting some artists style, but Morgandy didn’t let the surface show up his work, setting to construct one of his distinct and absorbing flowing abstract creations. The organic and free dynamic in Morgandy’s work is always a great sight, to see the way the colours sit aside each other and the shapes form and merge, culminating in a crescendo of energy.
We would like to say a big thanks to the kind staff at the X-Ray Africago Shop for their immediate support to our project, allowing us to get Morgandy add something so beautiful to their property. We also would like to offer a big thanks to Morgandy, someone whose art we have long admired, for coming down to add this delightful work which really brightens up the road. We couldn’t be happier with the latest addition to SprayExhibition20 for us and the local SE20 community.

The beautiful finished piece, so much flow and an interestingly rather sedate colour palette by Morgandy’s standards, but one that really suits its immediate surroundings and very much commands your full attention as you walk on past.
Down the other end of Maple Road from Artista’s bright and vibrant work in the same road, it’s a real pleasure to see some colour creep in to the area with support from the artists helping us out and the local businesses for letting us put this together.
