Street art comes to Tooting as artists create a gallery near Tooting Broadway market
Tooting Broadway market has found itself at the centre of a mini street art takeover with artists flocking to area in order to decorate the little access road to the side of the main building.
Nestled between Broadway and Tooting market the road only leads to a small car park but it’s well worth popping down to see because the art on display is pretty good with some stand out pieces from Irony in particular who we last covered here on the blog when he and Boe painted a giant chihuahua on Chrisp Street in Poplar.
The first piece you see though when walking from Tooting Broadway station in the direction of the market is another massive piece from Mr. Cenz. Gazing down on the street his latest creation occupies a position above an Iceland. It’s another example of the stamp this artist seems to be making on South London following hot on the heels of an equally large mural in Brixton.
Other artists including Louis Masai, Fanakapan , Olivier Robieau, Dan Kitchener and Boe have also added their mark to what is a condensed but very high quality little outdoor gallery. Until now Tooting hasn’t had much by the way of street art but you never know, perhaps this is just the beginning.
Inspiring City visited Tooting on Thursday 18 February 2016. The art can be found on the side of Tooting Broadway market next to the Iceland. Exiting the tube at Tooting Broadway station it is only a couple of minutes walk.
