Leading illustrator and linocut artist Paul Catherall is renowned for his clean, sharp prints of London architecture, including Tate Modern, Battersea Power Station and Trellick Tower.

He draws much of his subject matter from the city's more characterful landmarks, with a broad focus on modernist designs and including those whose aesthetics divide opinion, such as the South Bank and the Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre.

The vibrancy of his images and bold modernity of the subject matter is juxtaposed with the traditional printmaking process, presenting a contemporary take on classic mid-20th century poster design.

Catherall is also one of London Transport's most popular and prolific poster artists, with recent commissions including the 'Four Seasons' set featuring Blackfriars Bridge and the current 'A New View of London' triptych for the rebranded London Overground.

He creates his prints entirely by hand in a painstaking relief printing process that can take several weeks to complete.
