This year’s 20th Dulwich Festival kicked off with a bang with the first weekend of the Artists Open House and a great party at one of the houses in Court Lane that included live jazz/rock dance and a fashion show as well as sculptures, graffiti art, jewellery and other art.
All over Dulwich, the Baroque the Streets street art initiative attracted loads of art lovers armed with cameras. The graffiti art in this project – both giant sized and tiny – is inspired by pictures in Dulwich Picture Gallery. This fun take on the Old Masters by cutting edge modern talent was conceived and brought to life by street art impresario, Ingrid Beazley (who is also a passionate advocate for the Gallery) with a team of talented street artists.
Here are two slideshows of some the fun:
