LONDON.- Gagosian Britannia Street presents leading British artist, Paul Noble’s first exhibition in London for seven years. The exhibition marks the culmination of his monumental fifteen year project – the meticulous depiction of a fictional city called Nobson Newtown. The artist is a master draughtsman who makes virtuoso pencil drawings on an epic scale. These wall-sized drawings offer aerial perspectives over a fantastical cityscape that echoes the utopian ethos of projects such as the Garden City Movement and New Towns such as Milton Keynes.

Dominating the exhibition is the artist’s monumental drawing Welcome to Nobson, measuring nearly 15 feet high and over 23 feet wide, and made up of twenty separate panels. It is by far the largest drawing of the Nobson series and has never been exhibited before. The exhibition includes other large drawings, all of them closely related to particular elements and areas of the larger work.

The show also includes two monumental sculptures, standing some 12 feet tall on their bases, together with other sculptures, bead curtains, and smaller drawings, all in some way expanding or illustrating details of the Welcome to Nobson work.

Born in 1963 in Northumberland, Paul Noble lives and works in London. His was one of five founding members of City Racing, an influential artists’ space in London (1988-98) where he showed in 1990. His work has been exhibited in London at Cubitt Gallery (1995), Chisenhale Gallery (1998), Tate Gallery (1999), and Whitechapel Art Gallery (2004); and internationally at the Albright Knox Gallery, Buffalo (2003), Museum Boymans van Beuningen, Rotterdam and the Migros Museum, Zurich (2005).
