A hand-bound book created during a course at the University of London's Central Saint Martins. I was prompted to create a book that illuminates an aspect of London that is often overlooked, or "hidden".

 

I chose to illustrate the beautiful street art present in the streets of London, and compare them to fine artworks housed in museums around the city. I find it intriguing that there is such a difference in the appreciation of street and mural art in relation to fine art. This book re-imagines the works in a different context to illustrate the artistry of street artworks.

The street art murals illustrated in the book were located in Shoreditch while the framed counterparts are displayed at the British Museum and Tate Modern.
