The opening night at the new East London gallery is sponsored by Five Points Brewing Company and EMBA who will be keeping Londoners hydrated with locally crafted brews.

The exhibition officially opens to the public from Friday, 12 April to Sunday, 14 April.

Limited edition prints will be available for purchase at The London Project with a portion of proceeds being donated to Smart Works, a charity that empowers unemployed women in London.

About The London Project exhibition

Casual Chronicles' collection of illustrations in The London Project playfully captures an eclectic mix of Londoners caught in the moment as they go about their lives, across the city. Seen pacing down streets, dashing for tubes and dancing with drag queens, these Londoners of all ages have one thing in common – they make you look twice because they, like their city, are one of a kind.

The illustrations are defined by bold colour, movement, and minute detail, whether a head to toe pink ensemble, the curve of a peak-hour hunched shoulder or a hip in mid-sway, Casual Chronicles captures individuality in action.

About the artist

Emma George, the Australian-born artist behind Casual Chronicles, moved to London five years ago. She took inspiration from life on the streets of London; it sprinkled the daily grind with unexpected excitement. An obsession with people watching and a tendency to doodle developed into the visual diary that is Casual Chronicles.

A full-time management consultant in the City, she paints Casual Chronicles illustrations in her London living room. When she travels for work, her sketch book makes it onboard trains, planes and other peculiar places. A side plate that she was using as a paint pallette once made it into a client meeting hidden in her handbag. She produces her illustrations by hand using pencil and paint, before they are scanned at a high resolution and turned into giclée prints.

Limited edition prints will be available for sale at ‘The London Project’ with a portion of proceeds being donated to Smart Works, a charity that provides interview training and clothes to unemployed women to build their confidence.
