The Sunday Painter in Blenheim Grove

From Peckham Vision Facebook: From Will Jarvis: Hello, I run an art Gallery and studios called The Sunday Painter located in a beautiful Art Deco building on Blenheim Grove, we recently spent over £20,000 redecorating the front of this incredible building. We are one of the sites proposed to be knocked down in favour of six storey generic flats. We currently lease studios to over forty small businesses, artists and designers and over the years we have helped hundreds of young creatives find a decent affordable studio, providing a platform for them to start the often arduous task of trying to get somewhere within the creative industries. Our studios act as an incubator for young creative individuals who go on to other initiates In and around the area.
