2016 – A Year Of Street Art In Croydon

This morning in our series of reviews of the last year we are going to take a look back at the year of Street Art and Graffiti in Croydon. It’s been another good year in Croydon after the flying start it had through 2015. Croydon’s Arts Quarter has continued to receive a steady stream of new additions and played host to a Paint Jam in the summer which we put together as part of the ‘We Are Croydon’ Block Party that saw some 23 new works added to the area.  As well as all this Croydon still plays host to what has to be the largest set of legal painting spots beyond Leake Street to paint in and is fortunate enough to play host to some of London’s finest Graffiti Writers, you just have to be fortunate and regular to catch it. So without further ado we present a year of Street Art in Croydon for 2016.
