Penge on the news! Big thanks to the BBC for coming out and seeing what we've been doing in Penge.
We are an unfunded, non-profit art group sharing our passion for Street Art around our home town of Penge. Working with artists and residents to shape and manage public spaces to brighten the area and the lives of the people who live here.
Independent of business or council organisations we volunteer our time and energy to create a public platform for the love of the art, free from the influence of advertisers and marketers.
Established in January 2015, we have created a brilliant landscape of local and international murals in and around the Penge area. So far we have facilitated over 700 Street Art works across south London.
Do you have a public wall space that could use some brightening up? A gable end that needs a mural? Donate your wall to the project here.
Big thank you to all the wall owners, artists and volunteers who contributed to the project in 2021! With your help we opened 31 new mural locations and facilitated the creation of 75 new public artworks!
We had the privilege of being invited on to BBC Radio London by Salma El-Wardany to discuss London's street art scene, it's history and where some of the best pieces to go and see art around the capital.
MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who turned out in the cold and those who stayed for our almost 7 hour street art tour marathon in memory of Gordon Gibbens. Thanks to your support we raised £258 for the St.Christopher Hospice on Lawrie Park Rd. If you would like to donate, Gordon's daughter and son-in-law are still selling their wonderful publication 'How Graffiti Saved My Dad's Life (At Least For A While) - via https://colossivepress.bigcartel.com All proceeds from the book go to St.Christopher's from where Gordon made his final graffiti photographing ventures.
Thank you Gordon, for supporting and sharing the art in Penge from the very beginning

" I’ve seen a couple of these by accident and didn’t realise there were so many. Absolutely brilliant."
" Well done, what you’ve achieved in Penge is fantastic. I’ve enjoyed watching the artists and exploring SE20. It’s even better now I know that Penge East is only 12 minutes from Brixton. "
"Love the artwork really brightens up the place"
Our project spans the whole Penge area, Including Anerley and Crystal Palace.
Travelling by train? Penge West station on the National Rail & Overground Lines is a great place to start. From there you can walk east down Penge High Street where a lot of the art is located.
