The Streatham Sketchbook
'Your London Publishing' is fundraising to realise the production of The Streatham Sketchbook, produced by Jiro Osuga and Mireille Galinou.
Jiro Osuga was born in Tokyo and grew up in Japan and the UK. He studied fine arts at St Martins, Chelsea and the Royal College of Art. Osuga has lived in Streatham for nearly 15 years, and draws inspiration from this neighbourhood on a daily basis. Mireille Galinou, a Bordeaux University graduate, holds a BA Hons in Art History from Birkbeck College, London and worked for over 20 years with the Museum of London collection of Paintings, Prints and Drawings which she curated between 1992 and 2000. She is the founder of 'Your London Publishing', an organisation producing a new type of London guide book. Each volume focuses on the capital’s residential neighbourhoods, rather than the well-trodden territory of Central London. The books offer an intriguing blend of art, local and urban history and journalism, and the creativity of residential London is analysed, measured and celebrated.
The Streatham Sketchbook is their latest project, scheduled to be launched in July 2017. To order an advance copy and support the publication, please click here.
