New Ant Carver Street Art In Penge

A few weeks back saw Street Artist Ant Carver take to Penge to hit up his latest London mural and in the process utilizing this magnificent canvas we were kindly given to get painted in Maple Road for our SprayExhibition20 community mural project. Ant Carver’s style is very distinct, comprising the colourful background taking an abstract form, constructed from an elaborate process of being built up with spray paint and then deconstructed with smudges and even partly phased out with primer. It is on this platform that Ant sets to paint the detailed portraiture by brush with acrylic paints on the street. His grey-scale realistic portraits sit so well on the fluid and colourful base he composes, creating that striking effect of the beauty to be seen among the chaos. What we love most is how with many of the pieces, the eyes on the subject appear to be looking directly at you as you stand before the work, creating that sense of connection between viewer and subject. For this work Ant Carver was again kindly supported by Josh Booth and painted a depiction of Christina Nadin based on a photograph by Jordan Green. We would like to say thanks to the owners of this magnificent space for allowing us to get Ant Carver to add something so beautiful to their property. We also would like to offer a big thank you to Ant Carver for coming down to add this striking addition to the area.
