Stanley Donwood, the man responsible for some of Radiohead's most wicked album and poster art, sets his first solo exhibition at Lazarides Gallery. There are thirteen original panels, each presenting an apocalyptic view of today's London: Big Ben, Centre Point, The Gherkin and Battersea Power Station are some of the landmarks featured in the work, drowning as the Thames breaks its banks during a torrential flood. Stanley Donwood has taken some inspiration for 'London Views' from the 1493 Nuremberg Chronicle.
