Tobias Till | Oranges and Lemons
Tobias Till's latest work is an incredibly detailed view of London which condenses an abundance of fascinating imagery and history about the city into an image based around the classic nursery rhyme 'Oranges and Lemons.' Within the print figures and buildings from different historical periods have been illustrated side by side, creating multiple narratives and capturing the incredible character and diversity of London's history.
This project has taken 18 months to realise. In this time the artist has undertaken a vast amount of research and preparatory drawings, finally hand printing the image in 7 colours, using 5 separate colour blocks.
