Artist Creates Post-apocalyptic Versions of London, Newcastle and Edinburgh

The river Thames has run dry, the Shard is burning and there’s no seems to be no sign of life on the South Bank.

It sounds nothing like London as we know it now , but this stark artwork reimagines the capital in a post-apocalyptic world. Inspired by the film Insurgent, starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, and its dystopian setting, an artist has reimagined what London, Edinburgh and Newcastle could look like in the future … and the results are bleak.
