There are a lot of groovy two dimensional design-led public artworks cropping up in London at the moment. 

This one is by Garudio Studiage who are based in Peckham. They are a collective of four: Laura Cave (who trained as a jeweller), Hannah Havana (also a jeweller), Chris Ratcliffe (graphic designer) and Anna Walsh (painter). 

The Peckham Peace Wall at Peckham Square is made up of tiles of 4,000 post-it notes left on boards covering broken windows on Rye Lane after the riots in 2011. The original post-its were digitally hand-traced by the artists working with young people from Peckham.

The Peckham Peace Wall was commissioned by Peckham Space, with funding from Southwark Council's Greener Cleaner Safer fund awarded by Peckham & Nunhead Community Council.
