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 [email protected] as soon as possible (no deadline, but we’re hoping to organise an exhibition soon).
