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.
An artist re-creation of the city in a post-apocalyptic world where the river Thames has run dry and the Shard is on fire.
London as we know it today boasts an iconic skyline featuring instantly recognisable landmarks such as City Hall (far left) and the towering Shard.
The artist’s rendering of Newcastle in a dystopian future has the Tyne Bridge falling apart and graffiti along the river bank.
Built by the same man who went on to design the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Tyne Bridge is the most iconic of the seven bridges crossing the River Tyne.
Edinburgh’s Waverly rail station appears abandoned, and the city’s picturesque skyline is barely recognisable.
