The Prize for Illustration 2015: London Places and Spaces exhibition — currently on display at London Transport Museum — celebrates the unique and multilayered character of our city.

On display, 100 unique illustrations that depict London life through its colours, shapes, people, buildings and public places. Subjects are varied but all exclusively London-themed: from the soothing nature of its parks to the geometric shapes of skyscrapers in the City; from hyperreal landscapes to colourful portraits of its inhabitants.

Each of the illustrations above depict a different aspect of the city's streets. Artist Amanda White focuses on the historical importance of Craven Street, upon which you can find the former home of renowned 18th century polymath Benjamin Franklin; Lydie Greco highlights the fascinating contrast between old and new within London's architecture; and Matthew Eveleigh shows us a night-time scene packed full of action, on the streets of Clapham.

Printed copies of these beautiful illustrations are available from the museum’s online shop where you can also find printed mugs, tote bags and travelcard holders.

We’re delighted to be media partner to London Transport Museum and will be bringing you snapshots and stories behind the illustrations throughout the exhibition’s run.

The Prize for Illustration 2015: London Places and Spaces exhibition is at London Transport Museum, Covent Garden, 15 May-6 September 2015. Entry to the museum costs £16 or £13.50 for concessions and allows unlimited daytime access to all exhibitions and events for 12 months from date of purchase. Children go free.
