Mind the Gap

London, the best city in the world. What lucky people we are to live here. 

What makes it the best? For me it’s the fact you can live here all your life and yet you could never know all this sprawling behemoth has to offer. Every time we go exploring we learn something new, see something we haven’t seen before.

The tube map is such a familiar image to us Londoners, we carry it around in our heads. We feel pride when we manage to recall a correct route from one disparate part to another. The tube map helps us find our way around. The picture in our head stops us getting lost.

See my new Tube Map paintings (which are FOR SALE) at The Sultan Pub in Wimbledon this weekend only, part of the Lost & Found exhibition for the Merton Arts Festival
