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.
