The WOM Collective has taken over the Penge Outdoor Gallery for International Women’s Day. Part of a series of events called ‘WOM Inspired 23’. 47 artists turned up to paint a total of 53 murals on the walls of the multi-storey car park which houses the gallery.
Penge Outdoor Gallery
Established by our friends at London Calling Blog, the Penge Outdoor Gallery has become known for it’s range of artworks. Every few months the street art here changes though it’s only open at certain times. The space occupies the top two floors of a car park which has long been closed to the public.
Murals by Female Artists
Celebrating international women’s day, it’s the first time that the location has been painted exclusively by female artists. Curated by the WOM Collective, the murals have been spread across the entirety of the space. It’s a good use for a location that will ultimately be redeveloped along with the old Blenheim Centre in Penge.
For the artists taking part, the whole space has taken over a month to re-paint. Standout works in the gallery include large scale murals from Lours, VaneMG, Hazard and Shauna Blanchfield with collaboration pieces from Tamoonz and Nush Poke and from Elno and Roo. Other major pieces include murals from Mowcka, Layla Cope, LeSpleen, Van Jimmer, Curiouser and Curiouser and Jeru.
The Wom Inspired 23 takeover of the ‘Penge Outdoor Gallery’ was visted on 11 March 2023 and is open again on 18 March 2023. It was curated by the WOM Collective and supported by London Calling Blog and Street Art Atlas.
