East London based brother and sister design duo Tom and Jess Jones-Berney, running under the moniker of Tomartacus, present a striking collection of illustrated prints that brings London’s sprawling urban jungle to life in an explosion of vibrant colour.
London Landscapes offers some incredible panoramas of the capital. From the iconic Bethnal Green Gasworks, long synonymous with the East London skyline, to the unshakeable maritime majesty of Greenwich, Tomartacus captures the unique and varied landscape of our city through a distinctly local lens.
This exhibition takes us on a visual tour of local landmarks, including the colourful boats on Regent’s Canal, contemporary street art on Brick Lane, beautiful blooms in Columbia Road Flower Market, and the Dickensian charm of Limehouse.
Tomartacus’ process sees Jess taking photographs then Tom sketching them using a Wacom tablet. The result is an undeniably unique brand of hand drawn digital prints. Tomartacus like to think their art is a bit of fun for the eyes, “a slightly wobbly look at the world, with some added colour”.
Tomartacus has exhibited their work across London including The Archivist’s Gallery, The Parlour and Petite Coin.
London Landscapes runs from 6 September to 22 December 2018 at Gallery @ Half Moon during the theatre opening hours: Monday – Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 10am-4.30pm.
Beneath the artwork, there are chalkboards for visitors of all ages to make their own responses to the art. For all our exhibitions, we provide a gallery trail for children. School and community groups can visit free of charge by pre-booking and can the exhibition to support Arts Award Discover and Explore. For details contact Beccy on 020 7709 8908 or via email.
