New Airborne Mark Street Art ‘SEALed’ in Anerley

Here we are taking a look at a recent addition to Anerley by street artist Airborne Mark placed up in St Hugh’s Road as part of an ongoing project we are working on with the St Hugh’s Community Centre and Clarion, marking the one of six new works placed up on garage doors in St Hugh’s Estate. This is far from the first time Airborne Mark has visited SE20 to paint one of his hand-folded original Origami designs and it really is fantastic to see how much this artist’s work has developed in the last few years since he first painted in the area for our SprayExhibition20 Community Mural Project. On this occassion Airborne Mark set to paint a performing seal, which instead of balancing a giant ball on its nose is superbly set balancing an over-sized cap for a paint tin instead and aptly named ‘SEALed’. Fantastic work with a lovely nod to the culture.

We would as always wish to say thank you to the owner of the spot for donating a space for the new artwork for the whole community to enjoy. We also would like to offer a big thank you to team at the St Hugh’s Community Centre and Clarion for their help in getting ourselves and the artists involved with this lovely initiative. As always a big thank you to Airborne Mark for revisiting Penge to add some more superb art to our corner of the city. This work can be found in Chalkendon Close, Anerley.
