Discussion in 'London and the South East' started by mango5, Nov 13, 2009.
Yeah, I liked the Post Office artwork. I wonder how many areas of London now have these artworks.
Posters for this around the neighbourhood XR Camberwell: Heading for Extinction and what to do about it! - Extinction Rebellion
Fucking hate these things, there's one in Brockley too. There's enough street art in the area, we don't need a copy/paste from other south London areas.
Middle-aged middle-class types seem to love them, the bloke who does them must not be able to believe his luck.
Yeah I read about him. The signs are already so bland it wouldn't surprise me if they leak out of South London and infect other neighbourhoods with their cheapo instant faux retro coolness.
The should take a leaf out of Penge's book and get some original street art.
The Artful Dodger has a few pieces around Camberwell.
I like stuff on the street, but this corporate/ sponsored by local business stuff makes me dry heave. I like the temporal spontaneity of some work, even tags up to a point- it shows life and kicking back.The M/C embraced stuff at the likes of ED station smells of death and profit
Apparently this was underwhelming and a 100% white people event. Fighting universal existential crisis with a pile of meh.
The hairdressers on CHL (Crown and Glory I think) has moved and the planning app sign says it will be a restaurant. Next to the newish bakery and pizza place.
"Rebel Damian Paterson"? Are they prefixing their names with Rebel now? Its all so culty
Looks like internal clearance is happening in the former club couture building on Camberwell Church Street. There's also a nice new butterfly painted under the railway bridge opposite the generic neighborhood branding.
In other news, the picnic tables on Camberwell Green have been removed due to late night disturbance for residents in Peabody estate.
I saw on Camberwell Online that we're getting a branch of The Dutchie there - a Caribbean restaurant with other branches in Croydon.
Sounds more interesting than the last thing I heard about that place.
Also this next week

Not a bad series.
I like this series because it covers less obvious neighborhoods
I liked that. Makes camberwell look so green, which is not usually how I remember it
