The Dulwich Arts Festival was held earlier this month, and one of the highlights was an abandoned house that had been taken over by street artists. Visitors could take a glimpse the house on the last weekend of the festival as it was open to the public.
The interior of the house was turned into a masterpiece, and the exterior was also transformed into a giant canvas. I visited the house at the open weekend as it will soon be demolished.
Various artwork by Pablo Delgado, a Mexican street artist who specialises in creating small paste-ups and pasting them (usually) at ground level.
One room in the house was painted by Thierry Noir and showed many of his characters; there were also paintings on the side of the van and canvases for sale. Artist Thierry Noir was in the room, busy creating more artwork. (Read more about this artist here: Street Art: Thierry Noir)
One of the rooms in the house was filled with artwork by Dscreet and featured the owl character. More artwork by this artist was located on the outside of the building, including the front of the house.
My Dog Sighs painted the upstairs utility room area, including painting water bubbles on the wall and sink. A few hidden gems could be found on the walls and under cabinets, including a tin can with a face and various messages.
In addition to the utility room, My Dog Sighs painted eyes on various exterior walls and the front door. Some of the eyes showed silhouettes of figures and the sky. I think this artist is brilliant with depicting water, bubbles, and glass-like surfaces.
This very 'angular-looking' room was painted by MadC.
Assorted artwork by Agent Provocateur, Pablo Delgado, Joyce Treasure, 616 (a.k.a. Benjamin Murphy), and Celso.
