Mark Boardman - RBG Kew
We’re absolutely thrilled to share this beautiful series of illustrations created by Mark Boardman to accompany the new Travel The World At Kew Exhibition, which is open now in their global garden. Following three months of closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Kew Gardens has reopened and is showcasing its uniquely diverse landscape by presenting an exhibition of words and images linked specifically to areas within their gardens, reconnecting visitors with nature and satisfying their frustrated wanderlust. Tasked with bringing the specially commissioned poetry and prose to life, Mark’s illustrations were inspired by the Royal Botanic Garden's selection of worldwide plants and trees, transporting visitors on a journey to each country.
Talking about his contribution to the exhibition, Mark has described his pleasure at working on this inspiring project, “I felt so fortunate to have this commission to focus on during lock down. Not only did it allow me to immerse myself in researching the many botanic wonders at Kew, it gave me the opportunity to feel like I was escaping on my own global adventure.” To see more of Mark’s work, click here.
