Celebrating extraordinary arts and culture in Wandsworth and people who make it happen.
Wandsworth Art connects the borough's art lovers with the vibrant wealth of creative talent on our doorsteps. Since 2020, Wandsworth Art has profiled local artists and and creative organisations, published interviews and articles spotlighting the cultural heritage and landscape of the borough, and set out Wandsworth's vision for Arts and Culture.
Wandsworth is home to vibrant neighbourhoods and a thriving arts scene, and we want to showcase our borough’s culture to London and the world.
Let's beat the January blues with a round up of creative activities you can find on your doorstep - all designed to reduce your stress-levels, meet new friends, stimulate your creative juices, and get you moving in 2024.
Meet our February artist of the month, Andrew Gibson.
Andrew is an artist based in Tooting, his work uses light and objects found on the streets of London, onto which he paints images relevant to the place and the object's function. The works are internally illuminated and become unique lightbox paintings: an old taxi cab sign from Upper Tooting Road has the vibrant shopfronts it used to be part of painted on one side.
A new primary schools art project uses reclaimed fabrics to weave a textile river. Children from Wandsworth primary schools will create woven artworks exploring the impact of textile waste on the planet, to be exhibited at Southside Shopping Centre in Spring 2024.
