2016 – A Year Of Street Art In Penge

Since the blog’s inception we have began delving into various projects the most rewarding of which has been the organization of Street Art in our hometown of Penge through our SprayExhibition20 Community Street Art Project. All of which has been made possible due to the incredible support of the local community who have provided spaces to paint, ladders, food and drinks and even in some cases, paint. Community spirit combined with the generous support of artists who have given their time to paint for free have certainly added a splash of colour and life to the town. Since the first mural was painted in Maple Road at Nemo’s Fish & Chip Shop back in the first week of February this year, we have managed to facilitate some 19 murals on business and residential properties in the area,.from doors and small garden walls, to shutters and sides of buildings a little of everything has been painted this year.

Thank you to everyone involved in the project so far, business owners, residents and artists alike, SE20 wouldn’t be looking so good without all your trust, support and time. Thank You to New Art Rioter for all the help with ‘everything’. Firstly thank you to all the businesses – especially to the teams at both Nemo’s and Jack’s Quick Stop, whose assistance and generosity has been beyond kind – as well as to all the residents for providing us with spaces to let the artists work their magic. Secondly and equally thank you to all the artists for coming down to paint spaces big and small and brighten up the area. Thank you to Penge Street Art for all their invaluable help with the project and thank you to Community Magazine SE20 for allowing us to share the Art of Penge with in their superb publication. As well as thank you to M_Frenchi & Spike_ML, Street Art Atlas, Tanya Nash & Not Banksy Forum for taking the time to come down to Penge and share some of the work we have been doing in our local area to the wider world. So without any further ado here is a year of Street Art in Penge.
