|Underground Heroes by David Blandy
June 2009 - December 2009
Underground Heroes brings together artist David Blandy and young people and staff from Fairbridge in London's Kennington Centre. Inspired by comic books tales of heroic quests, each young person has created a superhero persona that draws upon their own interests and aspirations. With the assistance of photographer Tom Wichelow, costume designer Jenny Hayton and make-up artists Amita Rallin and Antigoni Livieratou, the group have been transformed into their characters for a series of photographic portraits to be displayed at the entrance to Charing Cross Underground station. The young people also devised their own heroic adventures with David Blandy and illustrator Inko for a trail of comic strips along the foot tunnel at Embankment station.
