New Croydon Street Art - RISE Festival

Kate Marsden

I was a little late to the RISE Festival - visiting on the final day just over a week ago, however it was a great opportunity to head out and see lots of new street art which has recently popped up in Croydon. My last post on the subject was well over a year ago so it was about time for an update!

The ever popular RISE Gallery organised the festival to celebrate international urban art and it certainly achieved that. Alongside the new artworks they also ran events and walking tours.

The festival may be over but the artwork is still in situ (as I type!) - I’d really recommend a walk around, and if you’ve visited Croydon to see the street art before but not recently, do go back! Here are just a few of my favourites seen last week…
