We have commissioned 6 graduate artists, all of whom work in very different creative mediums, to express how Q1 has inspired them. The results are surprising, intriguing, unexpected and exciting.

Caroline Derveaux, Painter

My work for Q1 project was to emphasise on a triangular shape, with a feeling of something vertiginous, as a child would feel when looking at tall buildings.

Caroline Derveaux is French artist based in London with an MA in Fine Art from the Chelsea College of Art and Design. Her work is a reflection of her imaginary world and childhood influences and deals with memory and unconsciousness through abstract translation. Her practice is multi-disciplinary and spread over different forms: painting, drawing, design, art direction, signage and scenography.

Jack Ramsay, Illustrator & Graphic Designer

By cross sectioning the building I’m able to give an insight into the behaviour of the creative people that will inhabit Q1.

Jack Ramsay is a Illustrator / Graphic Designer living and working in South East London. Since graduating with a BA Hons in Graphics from Southampton, he has produced unique urban landscapes noted for their dark wit. He has also featured in a music video where his illustrations were brought to life using motion graphics.

Rob Gray, Illustrator

Q1 one is reminiscent of the old Victorian train sheds and warehouses in King’s Cross. The work I have produced focusses heavily on movement, tone and atmosphere, using expressive mark making and a broad and diverse range of media.

Rob Gray is an Illustrator, currently living and working in West London. He graduated with a BA Hons in Illustration from Cardiff School of Art & Design and an MA in Visual Arts: Illustration from Camberwell College of Arts (UAL). He has been recently shortlisted for the AOI World Illustration Awards in the New Talent Children’s Book category in addition to having his own Children’s Book featured in Time Out magazine.

Joonhong Min, Installation Artist & Painter

I was interested in how the Q1 building talks to the rest of the King’s Cross development site, its transformation and regeneration.
So I collected waste objects from the streets around King’s Cross Station and then started creating images with the pen to work with various found pieces.
The art work I have produced is not only inspired by the buildings architecture, its shapes and forms, but also made from discarded materials from the historic past of the capital.

Joonhong Min is a Korean artist, based in London and Seoul, who draws and sculpts the buildings of the city using minimal colours, primarily black and white. In his work he explores notions of success and greed and the never-ending competition between success-obsessed people in large cities that for him creates a volatile and anxious environment.

Simeron Kaler, Painter

This piece is inspired by the conversations that are to be had and the ideas that will be generated in the new Q1 building. The new space is a place for people and ideas to become connected and this is represented through the continuity of the line.

Simeron Kaler is a multidisciplinary artist and designer from London, who graduated with a BA in Graphic Design and Communication from Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts London. She is inspired by poetic language, conversations and personal memories to create work that captures a moment which is presented honestly through visual storytelling.
