London’s largest international urban art festival is bringing over 60 murals to the streets of Croydon.

RISEfestival, organised by Croydon based RISEgallery, is taking place until September 15.

Murals and installations from some of the world’s leading urban artists having been popping up in and around the town centre since September 5.

Kevin Zuchowski-Morrison, owner of RISEgallery, said: “Having worked with both local and international artists on smaller projects across the borough over the past four years, I’m excited to have the opportunity to bring them and others together for this ground-breaking new festival.

“The scale of the event and calibre of artists involved demonstrates the exponential rise in popularity of urban art.”

To see the artworks, visitors can either book on to one of the free official urban art tours taking place most days or download the festival app for a self-guided tour.

Using augmented reality technology, the app allows users to learn more about the artworks by layering information on top of the pieces when they are looked at through phones.

Amongst the 75 artists taking part in the event are Dotmaster, Conor Harrington, BK Foxx, Doudou’Style, Phlegm, Lovepusher and Cityzen Kane.

The festival also brings a programme of events to the area, including live music, workshops, walking tours and independent film screenings.

Organiers RISEgallery are holding an exclusive new exhibition as part of the festival, which includes a pop-up shop selling affordable art work.
