The passport map of London is beautiful

This map is the work of Yanko Tihov, an artist who trained in Sofia but works in London.

He has used 32 passports of some of the foreign nationals living in London to reimagine the capital's boroughs.

Tihov, who painted the passport seals with 23 carat gold, said:

The artist’s vision is not constrained by physical limits or boundaries. I understand how imperative it is for creative people to be able to travel to where ever they feel safe and nourished. Having this freedom to move and travel, I believe artists push the future ahead of them. They bring hope and unity to a world that needs their vision.
