Prince, Ali, Maxi, Marley Murals

New Prince mural in Camberwell on Daneville Road next to GX Gallery:

Maxi Priest on shutters of Goldstar Office Furniture, Honor Oak Park, SE23:

Bob Marley by Brockley Station, painted last year by Dale Grimshaw to replace nearby Marley street art on demolished building.

Of these three singers only Maxi has a strong local connection - born and raised in Lewisham, he went to Roger Manwood School in Brockley Rise and  started out with Saxon sound system. Marley played a few times in Peckham, and I guess Prince did play at the 02 in Greenwich so that will have to do for his South London credentials!

Update 3 July 2016:

The Prince mural in Camberwell, by Artful Dodger, now features Muhammad Ali:
