Mapping Diversity

londomap

London-based painter and printmaker Yanko Tihov has created a brilliant map of London out of passports. Using census data, the map demonstrates the increasing diversity of the UK capital, while showing the most common non-British nationalities in each borough. Inspired by the international immigrant experience, Tihov’s map uses 32 different national passports that he has hand-painted with 23-carat gold seals. You can see more of Tihov’s wonderful maps, paintings and prints on his website.
