James Brown ‘The Wick’ £50. Available here.

In his own words…

“Hackney Wick was referred to in a 1976 episode of Dr Who as “A mudpatch in the middle of nowhere.” Thirty six years later and the whole world is coming to town!

Well, they will be next-door at least, and like a snooty neighbour they seem to want to shield us from view.

Without contravening any Olympic regulations by putting the word ‘LONDON’ next to ‘2012’ I have created a print which celebrates the ‘unsightly industrial area’ that has more going for it than any tourist or sports fan will ever get to know about”.
