New Art!

New Art on Raw Art

Kentish Town Map

Welcome to the website of artist and writer Sian Pattenden.

NEW! There’s now an updated limited edition print of the Kentish Town map at my online shop, from £40 inc. UK delivery. There are examples of other wilful cartography on that site including the Poundshop Map of London too.

Here is the SohoCreate festival map.

Please contact me if you would like a bespoke map – they make great presents. Some recent commissions include Bloomsbury; Highgate; North London – from the City to Muswell Hill and also a highly detailed Tufnell Park map.

Fine Art Etc.

Art is now at raw art; examples of video promos I’ve directed are below and there are some details at the bottom of this page about my children’s books.

This video was made for keelertornero as part of the Grrrr! Art task we set them in July.

Highgate Map

Highgate Map
I did a lovely commission last year, for the author Audrey Niffenegger, whose books include the Time Traveller’s Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry. As the book features Highgate Cemetery I made a visit. It’s ruddy great, I can tell you. A world apart. Quite cold, too. I went in the rain and it suited the place. Grey green – hence the colourscheme of this map.
If you would like to commission a map please see the raw art site!

Grrrr! Art Pop Up Shop!

The Shop featured the infamous Folk Art Brexit Protest Custard Creams which are now available in print form. “As seen” in the KentishTowner.
