Robson Cezar’s Whitechapel Houses & Corner Shops

Robson Cezar

At Christmas, we featured the wooden houses made by Spitalfields artist Robson Cezar out of fruit crates from Whitechapel Market. Since then, Robson has been busy through these last months of winter, collecting boxes and constructed more buildings, including a series inspired by the traditional corner shops of the East End. Contributing Photographer Rachel Ferriman visited Robson’s studio at Bow to record his new creations.

Robson has put seventeen of the wooden houses and corner shops he has made for sale. Every one is different and each comes with an LED light and battery to illuminate your building at night.

We are selling them on a first-come-first-served basis, so if you would like one please email giving your first, second and third choice, and we will supply payment details. Postage and packing is £4. Unfortunately we can only post these within the United Kingdom.

These houses are sculptures not toys and we do not recommend them for children under the age of twelve.

    I see to my delight, Robson Cezar’s Whitechapel Houses are being developed yet again. Wonderful the inclusion of colourful typography! — Actually, I should order another one to put next to the one from Christmas!

    Love & Peace

    These are wonderful! There is such a good connection between the source of the material and the finished art.

    Robson’s creations from everyday fruit packaging are fantastic and fascinating. His work studio is so neat and he looks as though he made his own windows from a largish crate

    This Sunday morning’s article is a timely gift for me while unsuccessfully sourcing miniature replacement
    casement windows for my ‘Spitalfields’ dolls house, in the right size.

    l have collected or made most of the furnishings, but none of my collection will satisfy me if the window panes don’t apear authentic for the area.

    Hurrah to you both for a solution !

    I am off to find a white plastic fruit crate and a Stanley knife. l may be gone for days.

    Yes – very clever use of the plastic fruit crates this time – especially as corner windows!
