Type of Place: 
A small series of sketches around central Loughborough created by former Loughborough resident, artist, Paul Gent.

Paul Gent, a former student of Loughborough College of Art and Design and a long term collaborator with Charnwood Arts was a valued resident and familiar character around Loughborough.

 

His fast and fluid drawing style has many fans worldwide. These drawings occupy a period of time in the town punctuated by many travels to far off places and Paul's portfolio is a Cook's tour around the world.

 

Paul was drawn to many of the older buildings around Loughborough Town Centre, in particular the Art Deco influence that characterises many of these businesses.

 

Find more of Paul's drawings of Loughborough in the Making section of People Making Places commissioned in 2015 especially for the project and website.
