Nicholas Borden: On the 254 Bus
Drawing and painting has always given me much pleasure, partly because it gives me the chance to work outside from life, which I continue to do to this day.
I wanted to start working on a series of interiors and what is easier to relate to than an ordinary London bus journey? The composition of this view is strong, simple and direct and I liked the strong red and magenta colour of the interior. It was important to me to be faithful to the expressions on the faces of the passengers, even though they always try to avoid eye contact.
My subjects are always what I see around me every day.
