Hookedblog headed South of the river over the Bank Holiday to see if we could find any of the new murals that have been going up around Dulwich as part of the Dulwich Festival, which will see some big names in street art creating an outdoor gallery of public murals inspired by works held by Dulwich Picture Gallery, England’s oldest public gallery.
The street art programme at the fesival titled Baroque The Streets, has been curated and organised by Ingrid Beazley from Dulwich Picture Gallery and Richard Howard-Griffin of Street Art London and in the coming weeks we can expect to see additional new mural works from RWKA (Australia), Conor Harrington (Ireland), ROA (Belgium), Dscreet (Australia), Thierry Noir (France), Mad C (Germany), RUN (Italy), Shok-1 (UK), Nunca (Brazil), Phlegm (UK), Agent Provocateur (UK), Remi Rough and System (UK)(covered here) and The Rolling People (UK and Spain).
The REKA mural is already complete and we managed to catch the new work yesterday on the side of the Paxton Pub in West Dulwich. The mural pictured here is REKA's interpretation of an old artwork titled "The rape of Europa" from the Dulwich picture gallery.
