My Life in London

Part of Unlimited

See the capital through fresh eyes at free exhibition My Life in London displaying colourful works by ActionSpace artists Thompson Hall and Ian Wornast.

The artists have collaborated for a year, visiting museums and galleries and researching the city to create a body of work about being a Londoner today.

Wornast’s graphic drawings map his fascination with the city’s transport system. Working from a combination of sourced images and memories, he uses the colours and symbols of Transport for London to create a tapestry of bold patterns.

Hall’s spontaneous and bright paintings combine the twin influences of his West African family ancestry and the great art institutions in London. His paintings are a portrait of his personal history and the architecture and landmarks that are important to him.

Commissioned and supported by Unlimited. celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Spirit of 2012.
