I love the energy of this part of London, Hackney Wick.  I love the visual contradictions. 

The regular, almost mechanical order of the Victorian factories contrasting with the colours and the shapes of the graffiti. 

I love the way that the abandoned warehouses and barges have found new life as homes and restaurants - the sheer creative human energy that this area exudes. 

This is one of my favourite views - I sketched this on the benches outside the Crate Brewery. 

I wanted the finished image to feel quite two dimensional, almost like a piece of graffiti itself while capturing the main constituents of Hackney Wick: the Victorian industrial landscape, the graffiti and the barges on the river.
