Maxwell Tilse is a 23-year-old Illustrator from Sydney, Australia currently based in London who loves to paste down the cities he visits into cutouts of papers while traveling. He has been traveling across the countries of Europe and the unique thing about his journey is the cities that he visits that follows him with his skilled art of ink and paper that illustrates the artist’s love and passion for architectural buildings.
The artist lives in London for the past two years, and now as he is leaving, he releases a collection of paper cut-outs illustrations he made of the city’s oldest pubs. Tilse captures the beauty of the Victorian era architecture with an aura of fresh air and essence that brings them back to the light.
He puts up the drawings he made right next to the original buildings and takes a striking picture that shows the uncanny twin effect once again proving his mastery in art. Here are some of them.
The Blackfriar Pub, London.
“London is a city packed to the brim with historical wonders that are so easy to miss or pass by, unnoticed,” says Tilse.
The Crown. Covent Garden.
The Dove. Hackney.
The Bricklayers Arms, Fitzrovia.
The Old George. Bethnal Green.
“I do love the mock Tudor architecture that’s nestled in between the grand Victorian hotels and galleries” Tilse adds.
The cutting-edge unique way of portraying architectural illustration in his work is exclusively new and flamboyant. It does add a sparkling edge to the entire contribution of art in terms of the minute and detailed structures of the monumental category.
