Acton in Graphic Art

Natalia Povalyaeva from Minsk in Belarus has been in London several times and made many drawings inspired by the city, but she has never visited Acton. But, thanks to the Google Street View service, she took a virtual tour of the area. What she particularly liked was its “town within the town” look and atmosphere.  She has produced 36 graphic images of Acton sights which she wants to share with the community.
