This time limited edition series features two iconic Map Paintings – Texas Louise (1971) and Australia to Africa (1969-70) - included within Bowling's first digital artwork 'Arrival' commissioned by CIRCA to celebrate the 70-year anniversary of his arrival in London from British Guiana (now Guyana) in May 1953.
Reflecting on his arrival in London Sir Frank Bowling OBE RA, said “The moment I arrived in London, I knew I was home.. My uncle met me at Waterloo, and we travelled by Tube to Finchley Road. I wasn’t even listening to what he was saying, I was looking round. It was summertime, and the whole of London town was still into the Coronation. And I went all over London – even up past Piccadilly Circus – travelling on the buses, on the train. It was amazing.”
