Southam Street Restaurant, Nottinghill, London

I was commissioned to come up with an abstract corner painting for a new members bar/ restaurant in the heart of Nottinghill, London.  It was quite a task trying to work this out!  I had to think in different dimensions as per usual.  Usually I will think very flat as this is how most my work is on a basic square canvas.  With this project though it was quite the task thinking around a corner.

I lifted this article from ‘The Nudge’ magazine.

“Behold Southam Street, the follow-up to the critically swoonworthy 108 Garage, set in the cosy environs of a three-storeyed former Victorian pub. It comes to us from the same unstoppable duo of Luco Longobardi and chef Chris Denney, who’ll be flexing his muscles over a different type of cuisine here. The ground floor will be a temple to grilling, from meat to fish to veg, while the first floor will sport a raw bar, with a menu boasting Nikkei-influenced numbers – so you can expect dishes like ceviche and sashimi to be making an appearance. Which is all pretty handy, since you’ll also stumble onto a dedicated sake room on this floor, or, if you’re feeling fancy, you can head up to the second floor, which is entirely taken up by a Champagne bar.”
