London-based Japanese illustrator Natsko Seki has created this striking illustration exclusively for Dulwich Picture Gallery, the UK’s first purpose-built public art gallery.
45 x 50cm giclee print on 300gsm mould-made watercolour paper.
Designed in 1811 by renowned architect Sir John Soane, the Gallery is home to a world-class collection of Old Master paintings by Rembrandt, Gainsborough, Poussin and Canaletto, to name a few. Inspired by the iconic architecture, local area and permanent collection, Natsko photographed real-life visitors to the Gallery posing as characters from its best-loved paintings, and collaged them into the final artwork. The result is a playful re-imagining of the Gallery which brings the collection to life for today’s visitors; can you spot which paintings and people from the Gallery feature in this image?
In her playful trademark style, London-based illustrator Natsko Seki has produced a brand new illustration of Dulwich Picture Gallery - the inspiration for a colourful new range of merchandise at the Gallery's gift shop.
Bursting with colour, Natsko re-imagines the Gallery in a collage of drawings and photographs of real-life visitors to the Gallery, who mingle with and even pose as well-known subjects from our permanent collection, bringing the Gallery’s paintings to life.
