A Street Art Guide To Penge

Seeing as our Street Art Community Project in Penge aka SprayExhibition20 has thus far exceeded our wildest expectations and there are now some 102 artworks to be spied around town we thought we would put together a free Street Art Guide to Penge. This walk will take you about 3 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 commences as soon as you leave the station and can be completed in 16 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 been painted down and in all their glory.

1: Exit Penge East Station and turn left into St Johns Road where the Street Art trail begins with a selection of 6 works by Irony, Dotmaster, Alice Pasquini, Chinagirl Tile, Glor & Dope.

  1. Well done, what you’ve achieved in Penge is fantastic. I’ve enjoyed watching the artists and exploring SE20. It’s even better now I know that Penge East is only 12 minutes from Brixton…….

  2. I’m never likely to follow this route on the ground but enjoyed the virtual tour, thanks. An impressive variety of styles and themes.

  3. We bumped into you earlier today just as we were coming up Maple Street doing this tour. Saw almost everything here, this blog post was essential!
