Croydon has one of London’s most exciting street art scenes, with pieces of art by renowned artists such as Carlee Desozer, Nolij and Toasone.
Over the last few years the street art community in Croydon has really taken off, thanks in part to RISE Gallery owner, Kevin Zuchowski-Morrison, who in 2015 kicked off the scene with a collaboration with Femme Fierce – an all female street art collective. Now, working together with Croydon Council, there are 64 sections of St George’s Walk designated as a “canvas” for street artists, alongside other murals at Surrey Street and the High Street.

‘Warhol broke away from the boundaries that previously existed, something that Croydon was doing around the same time. In the 1960s Croydon really grasped the nettle in terms of post-war construction. Not everyone loves all of the brutalist architecture that went up here but everyone has an opinion about it, and it contributes to the distinctive look and feel of the borough.’ - Kevin Zuchowski-MorrisonTime Out
