New Painting

'Studio Flat in Kings Cross' oil on board, 41 x 65 cms. This piece is based on an image of a flat which was advertised online for £737pcm, and rented within half a day.  All the essentials for a 'Studio Flat' were shoved into this tiny space, there was barely enough room to open the kitchen cupboards without the bed blocking them, I'm not sure how anyone would cook in there! The advert quickly went viral, with thousands of people sharing it in disbelief.  The sad thing is that many flats like this rent in a similar amount of time, such is the shortage of decent housing, people will take what is available at an inflated cost, and many (but not all) landlords continue to exploit this situation in London.
