London's Icons

100% of 100
Paul Catherall’s bold linocuts of architectural landmarks are instantly recognisable. Whether on Tube posters, book covers, greetings cards or gallery walls, his immaculately clean, sharp prints with their striking colour palette and graphic edge are particularly distinctive. Based in London, but raised in Coventry, Paul retains a huge love for the concrete icons of Brutalism and Modernism that framed his childhood. The subjects of his prints have included controversial buildings such as the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre, the National Theatre and Telecom Tower, as well as celebrated landmarks including Battersea Power Station, Tate Modern and St Paul’s Cathedral. One of Transport for London’s most prolific poster artists of recent years, Paul studied Illustration at Leicester Polytechnic and began his career as a working illustrator, creating figurative acrylic paintings for clients ranging from Marston’s Brewery to the Sunday Times, Daily Telegraph and Harper Collins.

This was one of four posters commissioned to celebrate the successful entry into service of London's New Routemaster bus, which Transport for London was contracted to introduce by 2012. Paul Catherall was tasked to produce four artworks over a 12-month period, each one featuring an architectural icon of London as a backdrop to the new Routemaster bus. Each successive image showed a New Routemaster diminishing in scale as the bus became more established in London's streetscape, and each image (at the point of poster launch) was coloured to reflect the prevailing season.
