Wall art in Forest Hill



Love the new mural on the job centre wall! Hope the Paddy Power wall will follow suit, hopefully without touching “the telephone”…

Weekly SE23.life Update - 20th June

Very nice, but does that mean we’ve lost our pseudo-Banksie telephone? Or is that another wall?


No the telephone is still there, this is another wall, the one more uphill.


Nice to see a splash of colour. :slight_smile:
I was in Shorditch the other evening, and have to say there is wall art on every corner now. Really changes the feeling of an area.


That’s good, I’m very fond of that telephone! Does anyone know who did it?


Haha Andrea, I just went over & took a pic too :joy::joy:


This is part of the street art for @HornimanMuseum Brazillian festival coming up until September :+1:


Oooh I do love a bit of street art.


Wonder what it is mean to represent?

“The siren-call of #brexit hides a storm that threatens to sink house prices”?



Should rephrase to “promises to sink house prices” - not a threat but a benefit, in my opinion! (off-topic ranting over, I promise!)


Ah, but that’s the thing with sirens, they were beautiful yet dangerous creatures, who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices, only to have them shipwreck. :wink:


Hi all,

So glad you like Derlon’s street art! Derlon is a Brazilian Street Artist and his work is quite incredible. This painting is a mermaid holding the sun… feel free to interpret that how you want!

Pauline is right, it is to celebrate our Festival of Brasil this summer. There will be more Brazilian Street Art going up over the next few weeks around Forest Hill and at the Museum - you can read all about it (and download the map to find the rest of the artworks) here: http://bit.ly/BrasilStreetArt



Thanks for the info @HornimanMuseum
Looking forwards to seeing more of this :slight_smile:


Great to have your input @HornimanMuseum. Like @snazy, I hope to hear more from you around the forum.


Hi all,

Just to let you know - there will be more Street Art happening over the next week.

This Sunday - 3 July - we have artists at the Museum for our Festa Julina event. They will also be painting at the Museum on Tuesday 5 July. Then they will be painting around Forest Hill on the 6 and 7 of July.

Make sure you keep an eye out for them, say ‘Hi’, take pictures and enjoy the artwork!


It’s all kicking off here at the Museum. Remember to look out for more Street Art around Forest Hill this week!


New in Forest Hill today!


So glad this wall has been brightened up as it was a bit of an eyesore before :slight_smile:

Cheers for this @HornimanMuseum :ok_hand::ok_hand:


The street piano in Forest Hill has now been painted and the mural at William Hill is finished:

The piano looks amazing - I love how the design puddles down onto the ground.
