Venice Public Pattern

The colours and textures of Venice as so different to east London


Over the last few years i have been collecting images of
Public Pattern & Public Graphic, from pavements to shop counters,
chemist mosaics to street signs.
I've decided that i should put them all together on one sight
so here we go

The majority of my picture are from walks around different
areas of London in which i have travelled.

Crate Barking 2009
Faux Cork final - takeawy Dalston 2009
Wall to house - Balme Italy 2008
Amazing Fish & chip shop 2010

Door Mat, Discount Fish Store – East London

It might be just because i have been looking at to many patterns.

but to me i like how the door mat is a interpretation of the same sort of foe stone/ granite

pattern that is used a lot for Bus laminates, but its qualities differ as a result of being made up from a different material

Walk around White chapel

Disused head stone showroom- faux pebbles(ceramic mosaics)Brick lane

I love the use of these modern mosaics that cover the interior wall surfaces

of the space it reminds me of the colours in the Film Mauvais Sang
( Leos Carax)

The Bell Foundary- faux oak ( painted soft wood) - Whitechaple

Chemist- mosaic glass tiles – Whitechapel
