Stewart Home

Stewart Home takes you on a journey through London from west to east exploring the shifts in the city’s cultural centres over the past fifty years. The landscape is splashed across a large canvas taking in Notting Hill, Soho, Hoxton, Bethnal Green, pubs, clubs, drugs and places to visit.

Visit Stewart's site for words and images with links to filmed interviews with Jeremy Deller (Turner Prize winner), Francis Morland (sculptor), Mikey Cuddihy (painter), Barry Smith (musician) and Bill Hopkins (writer).


Stewart Home is a cult author, artist, filmmaker and prankster of international reknown who has been at the laughing edge of critical culture since the 1980s.

Recent work includes: Tainted Love, book, published in 2005; Hallucination Generation: High Modernism in a Tripped Out World, an exhibition at the Arnolfini Gallery in Bristol; and The Eclipse and Re-Emergence of the Oedipus Complex, a film and series of photographs made with photographer and video artist Chris Dorley-Brown, morphing images of Stewart with photographs of his mother taken by Carla Hopkinson in 1966.
