Walking, Slow Tv,

Croydon High St

Continuing from the previous video we’re still in Croydon but this time we’re continuing along the actual High Street, which is not pedestrianised, right up to the point where it becomes “South End”. We’re a little out of the town centre here, with no trams, but there’s still plenty of shops to see as well as some art work. Check the page for this video at https://simonpain.uk to see the art in more detail as well as some that I only saw on the walk back.

Looking to Tomorrow by Sonny

A painting on a wooden fascia fastened to the side of a brick building. The painting is of a rhino looking to the right whose skin changes from grey to multi coloured hexagons as it fades away behind the head. Next to the rhino is a a woman of african heritage with her hair in braids looking in the same direction as the rhino. Behind the characters the background is an artistic mix of black, red and blue bars and lines and what appears to be an african wrap that the woman is wearing, printed with the same coloured hexagons as seen on the rhino. This mural is on Dominos Pizza, just before the flyover.
