While graffiti was seen as a problem in some areas in the 1980’s, in Brixton it was seen as a way to brighten the area. Consequently, the council began commissioning street art.
Brixton has a lot of street art, which the London Mural Preservation Society is now charged with maintaining. Some art is by international street artists, while others is by local community groups.
Street Art Treasure Hunt
Treasure Hunts in London run an adventure that explores the street art found around Brixton.
