BRUTAL GRIME

George Whale

George Whale's project Brutal Grime documents brutalist structures in London that hold importance to the British grime scene. By symmetrically capturing the repeated geometries in the architectural designs of the buildings in London where grime music was born, broadcasted, filmed, performed, or even once called home by certain artists, Whale aims to cognitively engage his audience through the sublime beauty of these monumental buildings. He also intends to persuade his audience that these buildings are now an important part to British heritage and an integral part to the grime scene in regards to its creation and aesthetics. With grime's breakthrough into mainstream popular culture along with many brutalist sites in London currently under the hammer. Whale's project is a contemporary and poignant.
