There’s a strong chance you’ve already seen Paul Catherall’s artwork. The London-based printmaker and illustrator has created posters for Transport for London on their bus stops and in their tube stations. More recently, he has designed posters for the #LondonIsOpen campaign on the London Underground. Catherall makes his prints by hand in a lengthy process which takes weeks to complete. He’s particularly known for his pared-down versions of iconic London buildings including Battersea Power Station, Oxo Tower and Tate Modern.
This spring, Catherall will be displaying 50 of his original prints at the For Arts Sake gallery in Ealing. Among the collection on show includes one of his newest pieces – a print of the Hoover Building in West London, which he describes as ‘a gleaming white Art Deco palace on the dreary A40’. Also on display will be his latest set of posters for the #LondonIsOpen campaign, featuring London landmarks.
During the three-week exhibition, the exhibition will be free to enter with all pieces available to buy. There will also be a Facebook competition with the chance to win a rare artist’s proof of Catherall’s Hoover Building print in pink – the only one made in this colour.
