Earlier this week, Roger submitted his completed artwork of square ‘9B’ in London’s West End as part of Article 25’s 10×10 Drawing the City event.
Roger’s square shows a vibrant part of the area where High Holborn meets Kingsway, revealing many of London’s faces – as a tourist, financial and cultural centre.
The images above show a sneak preview of a section of the finished painting, which will go on display in Somerset House from 1st November 2012.
Roger has been invited by Article 25 to be one of its 100 artists assigned a square of land in London’s West End as part of the charity’s 10×10 London drawing project.
Roger’s challenge, along with the other artists involved, is to capture artistically the character of their respective portion of the city. Other architects approached to contribute to this include Lord Norman Foster, Lord Richard Rogers, Zaha Hadid, Sir Terence Conran, Will Alsop, and Nicholas Grimshaw.
All 100 artworks will be exhibited at Somerset House for two weeks, then auctioned to raise money for Article 25.
