It’s early in the new year and, in what has in recent years become a bit of a tradition. Penge in 2020 finds itself at the centre of the London street art scene. Home to our friends at London Calling Blog, they’ve been decorating the walls around the town for a number of years now
The first weekends in January aren’t generally prime painting time. It’s usually pretty cold, there’s a good chance of rain and it gets dark early. For London Calling though this isn’t about the conditions. This is about celebrating the anniversary of their blogging birthday which started five years ago this month. In blogging terms this is quite a milestone and we’ve been following them ever since.
Certainly this is the first proper London paint jam of the year. Penge has taken street art to it’s heart in recent times and a wander around the town and its suburbs will reveal a multitude of pieces. This time artists from across London and Bristol came down to give it a fresh lick of paint for 2020.
In fact this might well be the most street artists ever to paint in Penge at one time. A true milestone if ever their was one to keep Penge street art fresh on the map. Let’s take a look at what’s new…
