Label
Martin Langford’s fantastical prints may appear whimsical at first glance, but they address serious issues of greed, consumerism, urban sprawl and environmental degradation. This print laments the proliferation and congestion of roads and highways in contemporary Western society. Not coincidentally, Langford lives and works in West London where traffic-snarled roads are a regular feature of everyday life.
