The Art of Urban Sketching
In cities all around the world a silent sketching revolution is taking place. Countless artists, or 'correspondents', are picking up their sketchpads, pencils and paints and venturing out onto the streets to capture stories unfolding in real time - a reportage formerly reserved for the written word. The Urban Sketchers (USk) is a collective of artists based all over the globe who exchange work and ideas on the website www.urbansketchers.org, and the USk's London correspondents have combined prints from their new book The Art of Urban Sketching with original artwork to capture the capital this summer. You can see some of their work at the Foyles Gallery between July 16 and 22, and a selection of related titles below.
