Herne Hill is an area of South London, located between Brixton, Camberwell and Dulwich, sitting on the borough boundaries of Lambeth and Southwark. Brockwell Park can be found close to Herne Hill's station. The area is also home to the Herne Hill Velodrome, venue for the 1948 Olympic Games track cycling events.
Herne Hill for the Market
Herne Hill Market has a special significance for us, as it was where we had our very first market stall, testing our product back in 2012. We've been going back to the market regularly since, and the market seems to get stronger and stronger. Offering a great range of food, drink and crafts, the market is open every Sunday outside Herne Hill Station on Railton Road.
We were commissioned by the Herne Hill Forum to produce a new set of artwork to be displayed on lamppost banners around Herne Hill in South London. This print is of one of those designs, just at a smaller scale! A great way to celebrate the market, and Herne Hill itself. The simplistic view of the street captures the essence of the place, and the title below the image is similar to that seen on vintage railway posters.
