Create! Art for Autism winners announced


Congratulations to our South London artist Wayne McGregor who is the Digital Photography Class Winner with his photograph ‘Out on the Tube’. Wayne’s artwork has evolved from his knowledge and passion for the London Transport system. He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the transport revolving around Greater London. From bus routes, tubes, trains and trams Wayne could recount a thousand journeys. Through this knowledge Wayne has created intricate drawings of the routes and journeys he has take. Wayne has developed these journeys in many mediums from stop frame animation to sound installations.

‘That must have been one of the hardest decisions of their lives, I can’t believe it!’ – Wayne.
