Scott Brownrigg supports Article 25's 10x10 Drawing the City London exhibition
As part of its on-going commitment to raising funds for Built Environment charity, Article 25, International design practice, Scott Brownrigg is supporting the charity’s 10x10 Drawing the City London exhibition.
The event brings together 100 artists, architects and designers from across London including Paul Smith, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Lord Norman Foster, David Adjaye, current RIBA President Angela Brady and London cable car designer Chris Wilkinson. Each of the 100 participants has been allocated a square of central London and has been tasked with creating an original piece of artwork based on the buildings and public space within the square; together these pieces of artwork form a collective snapshot of London and form a unique showcase of British architectural heritage.
Darren Comber, CEO at Scott Brownrigg will be representing the practice, with his piece of artwork, “Cycling in the City, 2012 Style” based on Macklin Street, off Drury Lane. The free public exhibition at Somerset House runs until 13 November and is open daily from 10am to 6pm, and until 8pm on Thursdays. A select number of pieces will be auctioned off by Sotheby’s at an exclusive closing event, with all proceeds of the sale going to Article 25
On taking part in the 10x10 event, Darren Comber said:
“It has been an honour to be invited to take part in the 10 x 10 Drawing the City event and represent Scott Brownrigg. Being part of an initiative which brings together so many people from the world of architecture, art and design to directly and creatively help raise funds for Article 25 projects to aid some of the poorest countries in the World has been an inspirational and valuable experience. On a personal level, it has enabled me to discover a truly fascinating street in London, one with an interesting history and to experience it in a different way, from the route previously passed through to go somewhere else”.
