Vibrant Artists' Community

There are over 60 artists who have their studios in the Bussey building, and numbers continue to increase. They create a context from which cultural events are created and can naturally evolve, such as the series of art exhibitions over the last three years.

Alice White

Alice (http://www.alicewhiteart.com) practices as a painter from a studio in Peckham, located on the top floor of the historic Bussey Building, part of the site threatened by the proposed tram depot on the large industrial estate behind Rye Lane. Her studio is one of many on the site, now home to a thriving creative community, with great potential. “I’m the painter paparazzi”, says Alice White in Dulwich-On-View which “recognises and celebrates the eclectic nature of the life of Dulwich and the surrounding area, the breadth of people and livelihoods, the rude health of the Arts, and the buoyant sense of community, and subverts the tired old caricatures lazily ascribed to our South London home.”

Alberto Ciravegna

Alberto has worked at CIP House since 1998.

Joanne Dennis

Jo Dennis, artist working and living in Peckham.

Paul Bower

Paul Bower (http://www.pocko.com/pockopeople/artist/paul-bower) has his studio on the ground floor of the Bussey Building. He has worked there for almost 5 years, and thinks it is a very creative place to be. He is an illustrator, and his work the Barcelona Plates has just won the 2007 V&A Illustration Award for best book cover. He also works for charity groups producing adverts such as Christian Aid Ad.
