Seeing as our Street Art Community Project in Penge aka SprayExhibition20 has thus far exceeded our wildest expectations and there are now some 48 artworks to be spied around town we thought we would put together a free Street Art Guide to Penge. This walk will take you a couple of hours (depending how long you stop to admire the artwork and take photos along the way) and is a short walk from either Penge East or Anerley Station. Our walk begins and ends at Penge East Station, where the art trail begins pretty much as soon as you leave the station and can be completed in a mere 10 easy steps. We would also suggest taking the tour on a Sunday in order to have the best chance of catching the dozen or so shutters that have painted down and in all their glory.
