The Street Art of Penge and Anerley Book for Charity

I’ve been painting with the Penge street art crew for a few years. The area has become for a go to for street artists and street art fans. It’s a project of passion for all those locally involved and those further a field who support and photograph the process and finished works. Finally after a year of disruptions and false starts they have managed to get a paper documentation of the works and artists that have been working there over the last few years. These are available for pre order now here  https://pengestreetart.bigcartel.com/ 

Available for pre order until the 20th of November with all profits going to St Christopher’s Hospice in Sydenham. Making it a limited edition publication that documents the work done by all over a few short years.

A word from the producers:

Over the last 18 or so months ourselves and our dear friend Street Art Atlas have been working on a project we are super excited to finally be sharing with anyone who cares. We have created a book documenting in photographs and text how our community street art project SprayExhibition20 has blossomed since 2016 making Penge and Anerley the largest open air gallery in London with over 170 artworks up at current.

We would like to offer a massive thank you to Street Art Atlas for documenting our project from day 1 and using so many of her excellent photos in this book, which she also designed and put together superbly. Thank you for all the time and dedication to this project and on this book! Big thank you to Colossive Press for all the editorial advice and help behind the scenes, answering all our questions. A huge thank you to Dotmaster and Irony for the unbelievably generous donations to accompany this book, beyond kind both of you. Lastly thank you to all the artists who have painted for us around SE20 over the last six years,  to everyone who has donated a space to allow the artists to work their magic and everyone who has stopped by to admire the creativity and support this initiative that we couldn’t be prouder of. 

So there you have it and you can purchase the book and potentially some special edition artworks exclusive for this project here https://pengestreetart.bigcartel.com/ with all proceeds going to St Christopher’s Hospice in Sydenham.SprayExhibition20 – The Street Art of Penge and Anerley.

Since 2016 Penge and Anerley has become a hub for Street Art in London, with SE20 having hosted over 400 artworks to date. So in acknowledgment of how this project has grown beyond our wildest dreams, we thought it was time to share some of this project with anyone who is interested. SprayExhibition20 – The Street Art of Penge and Anerley is the first publication to showcase the art of Penge and Anerley, covering a selection of work from 110 artists spanning 2016-2020. The book offers a peek behind the scenes and tells the story of how this quiet little corner of London has become one of London’s largest open-air galleries, documented by London Calling Blog and Street Art Atlas.

Rude Kids at Graffik Gallery

Just before i set off to Glastonbury Festival for the Unfaiground a few things came together in a weird culmination of events from several different strands. 10 days before i left we met on Portobello Road to discuss the promotion of a collaboration i was doing with Pills and dollar Bills. Around the table were, Attollo art, Graffik gallery, Pills and dollar bills and myself, June is a bugger for me, Glastonbury breaks me every year, I return a shell of myself and can’t face leaving the bed for daze. The festival ends on the 29th so the proposed date of the 1st was put back to the 14th… It was all still a stretch!

I got so much done before i left for the unfairground, but still it was a hell of a schedule when i got back. Add a large install into Home House members club (see next post) to the list of a solo show, a large mural to be done in a day it was going to be a tough week.2

Big Bang

dead_stars_insta

The Westbank Gallery have moved, and their first show in their new space is Big Bang a group show in a really quite cool space, It was the old social centre, so it has a bar in the middle of it, it’s a cool place to see art, or have a drink, or both. There’s a lot of friends in the show and last night was a good chance to catch up, not sure the tequila helped much.

I had other works planned for it, but with the death of Lemmy and Bowie recently i had to mark there passing somehow and the dollar bills seemed a good way to do it, the serial numbers are their birthdays and dates of their deaths.

The shows on for a month, nearest tube is Ladbroke grove, adress is 3-5 Thorpe Close W10 5XL, it’s under the westway.

Astro Boy hits Croydon

Picture by Ian cox aka Wallkandy
The second mural as part of the Croydon Mural Project is finished! Luckily i was the first artist to be asked to paint so… when offered a wall, I thought i could put one on the wall opposite and have the two Toys facing each other, luckily they said yes. After the very girly image of the Ragdoll i thought it would be nice to produce an image that was more male, Astroboy! All of the toys i paint are actual toys from my shelf of plastic crap i have in the studio (see below), Astroboy was something i got given in Japan a few years ago when i was doing a show with Rat king in Tokyo and have painted smaller versions for shows as part of the Toy series but really wanted to see it big!

A huge thanks to the Croydon Mural Project for getting me the walls and sorting out all the logistics. I had a fun couple of weeks in Croydon if not a little wet and i look forward to seeing what other artists put up around the town during the duration of the project
