The exhibition The Prize for Illustration 2015: London Places and Spaces features illustrations produced by one hundred artists, depicting London landmarks from the real to imaginary, fantastical to familiar.
With pieces featuring famous icons as Big Ben, the Royal Observatory and Buckingham Palace, as well as London’s many secret spaces, it’s easy for viewers to get lost in this visual stroll around London.
All one hundred works were chosen from over one thousand entries by an expert panel of judges from the art and design world for the prestigious annual Prize for Illustration organised by London Transport Museum in partnership with the Association of Illustrators (AOI). Each illustration is accompanied by a short description by the artist outlining the inspiration behind their creation.
