We love a good map, so when we heard that an artist had spent ten years completing a meticulously detailed hand-drawn map of London, we were pretty damn impressed. And now you can see this incredible cartographic creation on show in an exhibition at Palm Tree Gallery in Notting Hill.
The map is the work of Gareth Wood, also known as Fuller, who creates hugely detailed maps of places he's lived in. The monochrome maps reflect his personal observations of each place, with the London map featuring a Pink Floyd-inspired version of Battersea Power Station with a giant floating pig in the sky, flames around the Monument in reference to the great fire of London, and wads of cash coming out of the Gherkin building.
Palm Tree Gallery, 291 Portobello Road, W10 5TD. Until May 22. 10am–6pm. Free.Share the story
