After a long break in Wiesbaden there is finally a new legal area near the intersection of Biebricher Allee and 2.Ring. The pedestrian underpass that connects the sports ground of the school Mosbacher Berg with the Skate square of the city of Wiesbaden under the 2.Ring offers two large and a few smaller walls, in total 400 square meters surface available for spraying.
Less than a mile away from South Bank is Leake Street, also known as “the Banksy tunnel” by those who know lots about the infamous Bristolian and not much else about graff or streetart. It’s known by the name as Banksy himself was instrumental in getting this tunnel it’s “legal” status after using it for his “Cans Festival” in May 2008. Now best known just as “Leake Street”, it’s a great place to paint...
Stockwell (or “Stockwell Park Estate”) is a large set of walls by London’s standards, with space for around 25 pieces at a time, with well above average quality walls. What’s special about this place is the quality of the work that goes up.
Mile End is an active and legally sound place to paint. Inside of a local park (and right next to some kid’s go-karts and excellent skate park if you fancy goofing off after painting), it’s a pleasant enough place to paint, with very tall walls that are of moderate-to-good quality.
The walls that make up “The Undercroft”, which is known to most graffiti writers as “Southbank” are probably the most famous legal graffiti walls in London, due to their location on the beautiful South Bank. A worthwhile place to paint on a sunny summer afternoon, it’s a decent place to drop a quick dub if you are passing through.
As of May 2103, Trellick Towers is still fully paintable, thought there have been rumours of it’s closure for months if not years. A big plot with nice, tall walls, in good condition – this is a favorite for people with a special project such as a production. People often rumour of it’s closing, as Trellick Tower itself was sold recently, but as of May 2013, it’s still good to go.
Ladbroke Grove (also known as “The Pit”) is historically one of the most famous location for graffiti in the whole of London. As of May 2013, the redevelopment in underway and the construction company have given permission for writers to paint the hoardings around the site.
GRAFFOLUTION aims to widen our understandings and seeks counter-intuitive responses for and from affected stakeholder groups and communities, including those who have utilised street art as part of city regeneration and place-making strategies.
