Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

'Parkview Hairdressers, Kennington' is from a series of paintings depicting fast disappearing distinctive London shops. This particular one is of a barbershop in Kennington South London that used to have peeling paint on its facade but has recently had a face lift and paint job.

Living and working in inner London I am noticing more and more the disappearance of London’s socially and historically important buildings. I began documenting the changes three years ago by photographing and then painting buildings that were very often neglected or about to disappear. In only those few years I have seen neighbourhoods change and lose much of their individuality and charm to modern development. Many shops have closed down and have been left boarded up or ‘old’ shops, still in business, have been re-modeled substituting their original signage with new bright, shiny, plastic awnings.
