REMEMBER YOUR ROOTS

London, England
Curated by Vhils & Underdogs Gallery

During the Middle Ages, the common practice surrounding tile design in England included the representation of figurative, geometric, floral, foliage, and animal motifs, both real and mythical. In the 19th century, Britain pioneered mass-produced tiles, emphasising the importance of colour and composition over subject and artwork. This wall painted at the Old Truman Brewery in London's Brick Lane features two forgotten styles and techniques I felt the need to explore and combine here.
