New Sr. X Street Art ‘Rinse & Repeat’ in Anerley

Next up in our long run of catching up with what we have been up to in our corner of London over the recent few months we are taking a look at a great work from street artist Sr. X placed up at the end of the summer along Anerley Hill for our SprayExhibition20 community street art project. Through his work Sr. X  sets to subvert social convention and traditional ideals with those all so humorous and at times dark twists that are very much exemplify Sr. X’s sense of sharp wit and fun, criticizing the over-abundance of pop culture and values it sets to install on society from above. All presented in that vintage style taken from 1950’s advertisements and imagery Sr. X’s work takes a look at vanity within society and offers a sarcastic take on the way in which commodity culture is ingrained within the popular sphere and how this can for many define ones’ self-worth. But it isn’t all just social commentary and critique what makes Sr. X’s output so unique it is also that his message is so often infused with that rather surreal and anarchic twist on old-fashioned values that is so fun and pure Sr. X.

For this work titled ‘Rinse & Repeat’ Sr. X not only painted a fantastic artwork, but he once again proved his ability utilise a space superbly – something this artist has consistently done while working with ourselves. Leaning into the narrow viewing angle with which this alleyway spot is seen, Sr. X created an amazing 3D anamorphic work that really pops off the wall – for the record you have the perfect viewing position when the triangle becomes even on both sides.

We of course wish to say a massive thank you to the owners of the space who kindly donated a spot and trusted us to work it. As well as a really big thank you to Sr. X for coming back to the area to support this initiative and for leaving such a fun and cleverly executed artwork in the process.
