Magnificant map of Kings Cross at British Library
The Magnificent Map of King’s Cross now hangs in the Entrance Hall.
This map of the local area was produced as part of the community programme to support the exhibition and as part of the Reveal Festival – a festival of visual arts in King’s Cross.
It is made of 16 separate canvases each depicting a separate part of the area. A number of groups and some individuals were given a canvas to create their unique interpretation of the neighbourhood.
The map includes work by The London Canal Museum, Camley Street Natural Park, University College Hospital School and Somers Town Youth Club.
I did the Canal Museum's map, on the top right hand corner of the giant map,using all the volunteers contributions in ideas and images in the form of collage .

 Background colour is done with coffee

 Painting with acrylics

Heat transfer of digital images and illustrations
