Graffiti house in Lordship Lane, Dulwich

Dulwich Street Art

A rather large detached house lies proudly on Dulwich’s Lordship Lane – but due for demolition soon this structure is not bowing out quietly!
It has been totally covered in street art both inside and out as part of a very unique project entitled, “Baroque The Streets: Dulwich Street Art Festival” which took place throughout Dulwich, London in 2013.

On the front of the building bright colourful characters from Malarky and Dscreet feature amongst the many big names in international street art that were invited to Dulwich in order to create an outdoor gallery of large scale public murals inspired by works held by the Dulwich Picture Gallery, England’s oldest public gallery.

Street artists participating in the festival were:-

REKA (Australia),
Conor Harrington (Ireland)
ROA (Belgium)
Dscreet (Australia)
Thierry Noir (France)
Mad C (Germany)
RUN (Italy)
Malabroccca (Spain)
Phlegm (UK)
Agent Provocateur (UK)
Remi Rough and System (UK)

Much of their energy has been focused on 265 Lordship Lane, an old house which is soon to meet the developer’s wrecking ball – the house has effected a rather startling transformation and is now a canvas for the work of artists like Remi Rough, System and Roa.

On the side of the building is a huge canvas which Italian artist Run has painted a version of the ‘Triumph of David‘ across.

Access to the back was restricted so I couldnt fully appreciate the work by Roa but did capture another colourful piece from Malarky.
