London Art, One Of A Kind

London Art, One Of A Kind
Love this


A unique handmade piece of art, sewn from used exhibition leaflets with free UK 'Signed For' delivery.

It is not a print or copy, it is the original piece, making it a one-off. Not another the same.

Hand stitched, using papers destined for the bin, so very eco-friendly.

Each square depicts a person or character relating to an exhibition I visited: Sonia Delauney, Annette by Giacometti, John Singer Sargent, Ai Weiwei, Amalie Zuckerkandl by Gustav Klimt, Discobolus, Tom by Sophie Harris-Taylor, a puppet by Harry Vernon (owned by Peter Blake), Ethel Bartlett by Laura Knight, a Marlene Dumas portrait, images by Kurt Schwitters and Egon Schiele, Refridgerator by Allen Jones, an image from the Savage Beauty exhibition (Alexander McQueen) and, Eric Huntley at the Walter Rodney Bookshop

It measures 21cms x 21cms, but there is extra border for framing.

Listing does not include a frame.

Please note, if you live outside the EU you may be responsible to pay import duties or taxes, in accordance with your country's customs laws.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to give me a shout.


It gives me a kick to make art out of things others discard. Not to mention being very eco-friendly. All of the images I have used here were picked up at London museums and art galleries.

I absolutely never print anything. My materials have already been printed by someone else, and then thrown away.

Details for each individual square (giving credit to photographers etc...) are recorded on my blog,, as there is not enough room here. I will start recording once this item is listed.

All of my work is individually numbered, this piece is 797.

You can also find me on Instagram (my favourite), Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.

Drop by and say 'Hello'.

Thank you,
