Deptford, South East London is an interesting and colorful place, with a lot to see and do. On the right hand side is Deptford Lounge which has a copper fascade which is stunning. Plus someone with a sense of humour has artistically painted the building on the left. All on a freezing cold moonlit night in January !

I love the tie and necklace paintings! Perfect for that building, in my opinion.
It’s cool and yes suits the area very well 🙂
It might have been commissioned street artwork. There are a number of permitted murals in parts of London. On the other hand, a blind eye might have been turned because it is artistically adding something, whereas much of what is termed graffiti is seen as detracting from the surrounding environment.
Both seem plausible … and it’s been there quite a long time and probably been repainted, so permission has been given one way or another !
Hi Don, I lived in Deptford in the 1980’s when it wasn’t an interesting place. It is good to see a new perspective emerging on the old place, particularly as it was always overshadowed by neighbouring boroughs.
I lived there in the late 90’s and it’s “come up” a lot since then too … it’s actually a colourful and interesting place with lots going on 🙂
Does the city approve that comical painting or is it like graffiti?
That one has been there for years, so it’s either the people who own the buildings, or approved by the city … I honestly don’t know, but it’ not graffiti 🙂
