About

North London born artist Stephen Walter was inspired by the unfolding drama of London's city life. The Island - London Series is a collection of intricate drawings that map the city's 33 individual boroughs as well as amalgamating them into one large island. The island took two years to complete and intricately ties the mapping of the city to its historical legacy from pre-Christian times to the present day. The geographically accurate map includes many of London's main roads, railway lines, landmarks and green spaces. However, on closer inspection, 'The Island' has its own unique identity fashioned by the artist's idiosyncratic semiotics, wittly juxtaposed with the familiar everyday signage of maps and public spaces.
