Detail of Paris by Mark Andew Webber

Wonderlust by Mark Andrew Webber

Instantly recognisable, and often replicated, are the typographic city maps of artist, Mark Andrew Webber. It is therefore exciting to hear that Future Tense in association with Londonewcastle Arts Programme are presenting Mark Andrew Webber’s first major London solo show which had it’s artist reception last week.

A master of linocut techniques, Mark Andrew Webber is experimental in his work not least in his latest creation. The centre piece to the exhibition, Wonderlust, is a 3.4 x 1.7m sheet of linoleum carved into a map of Berlin which has taken 16 months to research, design and carve.

The highlight for the show for many visitors over the fist two weeks of Wonderlust will be the chance to help the artist hand burnish an edition from this linocut (as the artist created the piece in the full knowledge there was not a printing press in the world large enough to print the gigantic work!).

This centrepiece map of Berlin is complimented at the Lononewcastle Project Space with rooms containing works in different media including paintings, his famous typographical maps and a short film ‘Dehisce‘.

This is an exciting opportunity to get to know the artist better through seeing his creative process in action and sampling his many variations of style on varying media.

The exhibition, Wonderlust, is taking place at Londonewcastle Project Space on Redchurch Street, Shoreditch and is running until Sunday 10th August.
