Hand illustrated location print!
My dad and grandparents came from Jamaica in the 60's and settled in North London. Fast forward to my parents meeting in South London and eventually getting married, they decided to call South East London their home. I was born and raised in Lewisham and have so many fond memories and connections. Naturally, I feel most South Londoners [old and new] have a strong sense of connection and pride to their environment and community, which is how Chin Chin Prints was born.
I illustrate primarily local landmarks around South London that have local sentiment. My hopes are that my work allows people to treasure whatever memories they have with the location, whether they still reside there or have moved on to somewhere new. A slice of nostalgia! I have grown up with a strong sense of pride in my Jamaica heritage and celebrate our traditions daily, whether this be through food, music or our language. Equally, I hold the same sense of pride when talking about being from South London. Being proud and celebrating your community is the core purpose of my work. I illustrate buildings in areas where locals are proud to say they belong. My work is a celebration of belonging.
