I saw this sign whilst waiting to cross the road just out of Camden Town tube station. I liked the colour of the Hello Camden wall (its more turquoise in my painting, couldn’t quite get the photo quality right). I have used slight artistic licence in removing some of the other signs and making the pedestrian crossing box more luminous yellow. Hey, it’s my painting and I can do what I want 🙂
I had the idea of having my woman walking in tandem with the green man of the pedestrian crossing light, and have her in a red dress to complement the colour wheel theory of the green man.
Her pose is one of my bugbears of today; she is so busy looking at her smartphone she can’t see the wonders of the world going on around her. I am also guilty of this. Camden can be messy late at night, but just outside that Tube station there is SO much going on, all life is there, all the time. And she is missing it.
This piece is another on my series for Roy’s People Art Fair at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, London from 1-4 November. Please come along and have a look at my work and the other talented artists on show. Please introduce yourself to me, I love meeting people.
