The Ancient Curse Of Norton Folgate

Contributing Artist Adam Dant invokes an ancient curse upon despoilers in his new map which forms the centrepiece of the SAVE NORTON FOLGATE exhibition at Dennis Severs House.
“This painstakingly hand-tinted lithograph is produced as a counter to the rapacious practices of the latest shower of uninspired London developers, architects and planners,” he informed me.
“Amongst renderings of the thoroughfares and vignettes of significant moments in the history of the neighbourhood, the beasts who perished in the dreadful fire at the London Aquarium stalk the witless cretins who seek to despoil the unique character of Norton Folgate,” Adam explained with relish, “The animals issue curses in the Jacobean tone of the areas former, colourful, thespian inhabitants.”
Adam Dant is producing a limited edition of thirty copies of his Map of Norton Folgate at £500 each – sized 30” x 22” and all hand-tinted by the artist. Contact AdamDant@gmail.com for purchase enquiries.
