Brockley’s colourful street art

The first ever Brockley street art festival was held in early June 2015.

The colourful artworks can be seen on walls in schools, pubs and even the front of houses. Brockley is not normally known for it’s works of art on the streets but there’s a first time for everything! Co-organiser Phillipa Ellis said that although the idea wasn’t initially popular with all Brockley residents, most were won over by the end.

The highlight of the artworks is definitely the return of the Bob Marley mural – it replaces the previous one which disappered due to redevelopment of the Brockley Barge pub.

If you do get the chance to visit the area, please do check out as many of the colourful pieces as possible. The murals are handily located on a route which takes you from Brockley station to Honor Oak. Check out the map here: www.brockleystreetart.com/visit.

Street art is always changing. There’s always something new and something magical about the works of art. What do you think about the emergence of street art in suburbs in London?
