The Barbican is one of my favourite developments in London and after my first print of it sold out, it is high time for another look at this brutalist icon. The view of the Barbican is from the platform of Barbican tube station, the base image is a composite of 6 different shots. I chose all the people who were facing into the image. I wanted you the viewer to be drawn into the scene to feel like you're on the platform, watching a train go by and then casting your eyes up the 2 towers of the Barbican centre.

"Barcelona dogs 2, 2015" by Sasha Sokolova
Sasha Sokolova recently worked on the all-painted animated film Loving Vincent. This piece is her take on a summer scene near the beaches of Barcelona. Just back from the beach is a park developed when Barcelona hosted the Olympics and where people often walk or picnic or ride a bike. This “couple” caught her eye because they were both older and from another time, walking across a modern development in Barcelona. A mix of new and old.
