Penge Rooftop Gallery at the Blenheim Centre

In the centre of Penge an old multi storey car park has been turned into a rooftop gallery. Filled with artworks from a selection of street and graffiti artists. The concrete walls of the space have been covered in artwork. All this prior to the ultimate redevelopment of the car park and the old Blenheim Centre.

London Calling

Organised by our friends over at London Calling Blog. The Penge Rooftop Gallery is just the latest in a long line of street art projects to have taking place in the area. Already the streets of this South London suburb are awash with street art. Artists from all over the UK and the World are often able to find walls and to add their mark.

Blenheim Centre

The top of the old multi-storey car park though is a new space and supported by local developers Clarion Housing and the Hadley Property Group. Currently they are deciding what to do with whole Blenheim Centre which sits at the heart of Penge. Until such time it’s still operating in part but certain sections have been closed such as the top of the multi-storey.

Surface for Artists

It means that the space has been made available to local artists. Though actual access is still restricted. London Calling Blog, who facilitate the the Penge Rooftop Gallery, periodically will arrange public access days. By far the best thing to do is to follow their instagram to get the heads up for when they are likely to be. The plan is for the whole space to be refreshed every two to three months. It means a plentiful amount of fresh surfaces for artists to access.
