This diverse series of artworks dotted along Streatham High Road are connected by a theme of People:
Each piece represents a well known Streathamite through tangential references, creating a series of visual puzzles for curious passers-by to unravel.

Beep Studio designed the pieces, which were then implemented by a team of painters, printers, set decorators, and graffiti artists drawn from the Studio’s wide network of world class contacts.
