10+ artists to brighten up wall around new Lewisham development
At least 10 artists are painting hoardings around a large development in Lewisham town centre this Monday bank holiday.
The wall has been criticised for being a bit of an eyesore before it was enlarged reducing pedestrian space. At least now it will be a bit easier on the eye.

A number of murals and artworks are planned including some by Lionel Stanhope who has painted many signs around SE London stations.
I’ve long been a fan of murals and art to liven up public spaces. The more the merrier. I used to hope that local authorities and companies would work more closely with artists locally.
There hundreds at studios such as Woolwich Dockyard.
Hoarding in Lewisham surround a large site which will house a number of buildings including shops, homes and a cinema.
Piling is now underway on site.
