Printmaker Paul Catherall (opens in new tab) is no stranger to Wallpaper*. Much of his subject matter is drawn from London's architectural landmarks, so when we secured exclusive access to Renzo Piano (opens in new tab)'s still-in-construction Shard (opens in new tab) last year for our July 2011 Architects Directory shoot, we could think of no-one better to capture its already iconic profile for our limited edition subscriber cover of the issue (W*148).

Catherall, who is a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (opens in new tab), is now showing a comprehensive body of his 2012 work at London's Paul McPherson Gallery (opens in new tab). On show are his linocut prints, which take several weeks to create, thanks to a relief process done entirely by hand.

Known for his depiction of bold, evocative architectural scenes, Catherall's dexterity as a linocut printmaker has earned him commissions from the likes of the House of Commons (opens in new tab), Google (opens in new tab), the Southbank Centre (opens in new tab) and London Transport (opens in new tab), for whom he is one of its most prolific poster artists.

Alongside the 'Shard' and other limited edition prints, new works - including 'Orbit Grey', a well-timed tribute to Anish Kapoor (opens in new tab)'s iconic Olympic Park (opens in new tab) sculpture - continue to demonstrate Catherall's skill as an illustrator and printmaker.
