In an appetiser to the main event, the juggernaut that is Femme Fierce rolled into Croydon and brought a live street art paint jam to the shutters of South London. Joining forces with the Rise Gallery on St. George’s Walk, the plan was to paint the walls of the area around the gallery in an attempt to bring a little bit of colour to the 60’s shopping centre in which the gallery sits.
For Croydon is was the biggest paint jam of it’s kind ever to have been held in the town. For one day only it became the epicentre of street art activity in the city. More art planned for the around around the Rise Gallery in the near future.
So as usual for these sorts of events we brought along our camera and took a few snaps. The Rise Gallery itself will be continuing the street art project in the area over the next few months so worth getting down to keep checking it out.
