David Hepher – Grain of Concrete

Many think London’s monolithic council flats are a cause of social dysfunction. For David Hepher they are simply the “landscapes of urban life”. His paintings of these buildings have gradually become more abstract -and often include graffiti. Graffiti suggests “the human side of these buildings. I also liked the idea of the staining and things … It’s a bit like painting an old person’s face”. More images are here.
