Hackney Wick was referred to in a 1976 episode of Dr Who as "A mudpatch in the middle of nowhere." Thirty six years later and the whole world is coming to town!Well, they will be next-door at least, and like a snooty neighbour they seem to want to shield us from view.
Without contravening any Olympic regulations by putting the word 'LONDON' next to '2012' I have created a print 'THE WICK' which celebrates the 'unsightly industrial area' that has more going for it than any tourist or sports fan will ever get to know about.
THE WICK will be available at the show at Stour Space from next Thursday.
I hope to see you there.
