Efforts to make Dulwich a street art destination to rival Shoreditch continue with ‘Baroque the Streets’, presented by Street Art London. Starting May 10, some of the biggest names in international street art (including the UK’s Phlegm and Belgium's ROA) will be painting murals based on Baroque masterpieces housed in the Dulwich Picture Gallery, including pieces by van Rijn, Poussin, Tiepolo. A nearby house in Lordship Lane will also be transformed into a three-day installation (May 17-19).
Tours of the murals and debates led by experts in both street and classical art accompany the event. Visit www.dulwichfestival.co.uk for a full programme and list of mural locations.
