In June 2022, George Westren became the unlikely subject of a viral news story reported by TV, radio and print media across the world. Westren, a relatively unknown artist living in a tiny housing association flat in Spitalfields, East London, had sadly died in July 2021 during the UK’s Covid lockdown. It was not until a year later that a neighbour stepped in to prevent George’s portfolio of intricate op art drawings from being destroyed by a home clearance firm.
The artwork went viral on Twitter, where Westren's story - of humble beginnings, homelessness, addiction and eventual salvation through art - touched hundreds of thousands of people. It was clear that George had in fact been harbouring a secret talent all these years and his incredible life's work of intricate, complex op art drawings are now captivating the world.
