Urban Miniatures: PaxtonGlew Presents

24 / 10 / 19

Urban Miniatures is an exciting pop up exhibition bringing together the big names of the Urban Art scene on a tiny scale. A miniatures show, where along with artworks, paintings and sculpture, a subversive technicolour diorama, with working oo gauge Hornby train set has been created by global urban artists. Each train, sign and building has been painted by a prominent artist in the graffiti/ street/ urban/ contemporary art scene.

From high rises, a church to a Tesco, its a model village like you've never seen before. The idea for the diorama is to create a microcosm of the urban contemporary art scene on a tiny scale.

The miniature city reflects how art can compliment and transform the urban landscape into a colourful and vibrant landscape.
