Sixe Paredes

Barcelona, 2013


I picked up these two works from the “Mapping the City” exhibition at Somerset House where street artists were showing their ‘intimate relationship’ with their chosen cities.

I loved how artists interpret the places they know so well.

Especially, Paredes’ map of Barcelona.

I want to experiment with that and to make my own map of London. Maybe i could transform it into type?

First thought was to document all turns of my usual bus to college and to see the outcome.
