Ben Rea, Illustrator
Ben Rea has been Illustrator-in-Residence at Dennis Severs House recently, meticulously recording every inch of the rambling old mansion to create the elaborate cross section you can see below, accompanied by his working drawings all annotated with measurements. This picture forms the centrepiece of Ben’s first London exhibition A SLICE OF SPITALFIELDS, which opens at Townhouse in Fournier St this Friday 12th June and runs until 12th July.
