Brand Nu West End Show

Today illustrator Radim Malinic - aka Brand Nu - opens his first solo self-initiated show in London. Entitled West End Show, it's inspired not just by the lights, glitz and all round cheesiness of the modern West End, but by the area's history too. He's created 10 posters, each of which celebrates a different part of the district in a unique way and includes a short poem that he's written.

"I wanted to draw inspiration from both obvious and obscure facts," he explains. "The Holborn poster and poem was inspired by The Holborn Restaurant which used to be one of the main landmarks on London's social map, established in 1874. The place once so important has been demolished and now there's Sainsbury's instead. It can be argued, but it's not as socially important to what it used to be."
