The Prize for Illustration 2015: London Places & Spaces exhibition will display 100 illustrations that capture a variety of aspects of London’s unique character and qualities. Together they will show a multi-layered metropolis and reflect the city’s distinct personality and communities; from grand scale architecture and famous landmarks to London’s secret spaces and places – used for commerce and work, leisure and living.
The works in the exhibition will range from contemplative to the crowded and loud, imaginary or real, and from the past to the present – all places that form part this amazing City. Each of the illustrations is accompanied by a short description written by the artist revealing the inspiration behind their creation.
All the artworks are entries for the prestigious Prize for Illustration. The annual competition is open to illustrators and students of illustration throughout the world. The shortlist of 100 entries was selected from over 1,000 submissions by an expert panel of judges from the world of art and design. The winning illustration will be announced in May.
