Archway Road

Tax included.

Before I moved to London, I never knew what a gyratory was. It was never something that had been discussed in front of me in the 28 years before I left Australia. To be fair, I also had no idea what ‘fouling’ or ‘dogging’ were, either - I would get them mixed up in my mind and notice signs for ‘fouling’ - disgusting. 

The gyratory has entered my vocabulary in the past few years because of the near-death experience each day having to cross one. It is not some kind of expensive watch component. A gyratory is essentially a ridiculous roundabout that offers a frustrating and dangerous experience for drivers and pedestrians. London is gradually phasing them out of their road network.

Archway Road in North London has not one, but two gyratories - one at each end. They are chaotic, exciting and terrifying.

This original artwork is hand painted with watercolour gouache paint, by Brendon Marczan. It is unique and delicate, requiring professional framing. As the paint covers the paper, edge-to-edge, it is recommended that the artwork be professionally floated inside a frame.
