Around Peckham and Dulwich over the past couple of years, there have been a number of large pieces of street art on the sides of houses and buildings. They looked commissioned rather than done without permission so for a while I thought it was just part of the gentrification of the area.
But then I found out it was cooler and cleverer than that. It seems that the sedate and splendid Dulwich Picture Gallery has been in on it. They invite artists to select a picture from the gallery and then use a detail from it to create an urban piece anew. How great is that?
My favourite is at the end of our road – ROA has taken a detail of a dog defecating in a much more complicated oil painting and done it in his own style.
Carnota beach. Suduko fails and windy parasol.
