40 Beak Street, Soho, then and now...

At the top is straight on view of the old police station at 40 Beak Street, which I was commissioned to paint by Enstar Capital in 2015. And below is how it looks now - old building torn down and spanking new one up in its place - and bought by Damien Hirst as his new headquarters.

the journal will be in Arabic so the pictures have to read right to left.
