Londonist Underground: Notting Hill Gloom

Continuing our series of original art and photography capturing aspects of subterranean London.

Today's Londonist Underground entry comes from Shane Mahar, who provides this ever-so-slightly sinister vision of Notting Hill Gate. Shane explains his creative process:

The work I make consists of both drawing and rough digital editing. My process begins by completing a drawing then scanning or photographing the original. Then I add, subtract or multiply elements within the artwork to complete a finished piece. The drawing is of Notting Hill Gate station the closest to my flat. Being from Canada I am completed fascinated by the unique nature of English architecture.

We’re still looking for further entries for this series. All you need to do is imagine something — anything — beneath London, and create some kind of image (painting, drawing, collage, sculpture…) to share your idea. The image could be fictional or fact-based — from a Womble rave party, to the Shard's iceberg depths. So long as it’s underneath London, we want to see it. Send entries to as soon as possible (no deadline, but we’re hoping to organise an exhibition soon).
