Painting London Underground

Ewing Paddock

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

In June 2009 Ewing Paddock began the personal project of making paintings of people in the London Underground. To make the idea practical, he first built a replica section of Tube seats in his studio so that his invited 'passengers' could sit and be painted without the disturbance of arriving at a new station every two minutes.

The Tube is the place to observe Londoners in all their glorious diversity and he's tried to reflect this in the paintings. The 25 canvasses on show depict over seventy people, the result of an absorbing three years' work.

The replica tube seats will also be on display.
