Concrete Island, JG Ballard’s 1974 allegorical novel about dystopian alienation, violently begins with a car crashing off the unfinished high-speed spur to the Westway Interchange at Shepherd’s Bush, and disappearing into wasteland.
From the window of Griffin Gallery’s project studio, on 4th floor of the building that also houses the HQ of Winsor and Newton, Liquitex and Conté à Paris, you can see that Westway Interchange. And the train tracks and warehouses and concrete tower blocks that mark out this odd little angular corner of London.
On 16th March we invited people to draw here for a day...and this is what happened.
