Over the summer we was very fortunate to receive a visit from Colombian street artist DjLu on his first visit to London, who left us a pair of fantastic stencil works. This artist’s output is very politically and socially driven driven, featuring subjects representative of the issues his country and region are affected by, with the first work below in Southey Street depicting a Colombian farmer with hand grenade pineapples set behind him, representing the way farmers are forced by militias and cartels to grow illegal drugs. And the second work features a portrait of Francia Marquez who was running for Vice-President in the 2022 presidential elections in Colombia.
We of course wish to say a massive thank you to both of the generous space owners, who kindly donated a spot and trusted us to work it. As well as a really big thank you to DjLu for spending his visit to London hanging around SE20 to support this initiative and for leaving such a captivating pair of artworks in the process. The works below were placed up in Penge and were put up with support from ourselves London Calling Blog for our community street art project SprayExhibition20.
