In Lower Grosvenor Gardens just around the corner from Victoria station can be found three brightly coloured “sheds”, and they are art.

The art is by Richard Woods, a London based artist, and seems to be an evolution of a design he’s been working on for a few years, and he has become known for his large scale models of houses in bright, cartoon-like designs.

And they certainly do stand out.

As he says: “Houses come in all different sizes. This is a drawing of a small one, a medium one, and a large one”, and there’s not much else to say about it frankly – three bold coloured houses in a posh park surrounded by road traffic.

They are pleasing to look at when walking past, but not much else going on.

The art is part of a Wander Art Trail put on by the local estate group.

It should be in place until the end of June, after which it is due to be removed.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Presumably art not imitating nature as that’s exactly where those without homes sleep. Or certainly used to.

    I’d hardly call Lower Grosvenor Gardens a “posh park”! In reality it’s more of a scrappy piece of ground much beloved by street sleepers & weary travellers . But there will be plenty of room for these attractive houses now .

    For some reason this reminds me of the game Pacland, a side-scrolling Pacman spin-off.
