Tribal Travelator

The Client

In 2017, Rise Gallery were working in partnership with Croydon Council, making waves to transform the area. They had big ideas for the steps in the Surrey Street Market and got in touch with Art+Believe.


Total regeneration

The area Art+Believe were commissioned with was a busy link, connecting different parts of the area destined for better days.

Painting steps and walkways has been a passion of theirs. They’ve graced continents with their colours and style, so putting their stamp on home soil was a big ‘give back’ opportunity.

They used spray paint vertically, creating a tribal piece of artwork inspired from their travels. Bright colours, clear symmetry, bold and impactful. Better than a red carpet.

“The artwork in surrey street by Art+Believe has transformed the area and is an important part of our regeneration program. We were very impressed with how Dan and Charlotte took some very dull steps and turned them into a truly innovative piece of art.’’
