New Reves One & Sidok Street Art in Penge

Next up in our run of catching up with what we have been up to in our corner of South-East London over the recent few months we are taking a look at a fantastic work from street artist Reves One and Sidok placed up a couple of months ago in Penge for our SprayExhibition20 community street art project.

The work in question is a pain to photo, but is definitely one of the best collaborations we have seen for some time and one that really takes an interesting look at life right now in 2020 and with a positive look at what lays ahead for society next year. This well-thought work presents six individual sections that provide quite a narrative. The first section depicts the Coronavirus that has kept us in chains over the last year, The second section features a hand having broke free from the chain and is pointing towards the padlock that is 2021 which will unlock our predicament. Section three presents a padlock embossed with 2021 which will unlock the worlds predicament with a solution in the form of a vaccine. The fourth section shows a woman being surrounded by the technology which has bombarded us with an overwhelming stream of information. Section five features an uplifting quote of hope by John Lennon which certainly adds a comforting position on life right now with a nod to how things will improve at some point. For the final section the viewer is presented with an eye peering into a crystal ball looking towards the future. Additionally this work has been animated by Reves One as an augmented reality work which with the Artivive app you can view in motion.

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 Elno for coming back to the area to support this initiative and for leaving such a vibrant and beautiful artwork in the process.
