Meet by the Heart

by James Cochrane aka Jimmy C (2020)

Location : Off St Thomas Street, Meet by the Heart is installed inside London Bridge Station on the main lower concourse near the Ticket Office and opposite WHSmith.

Jimmy C has painted his heart designs all over the world. His colourful works symbolise hope and human connections and Meet by the Heart, a new meeting point for visitors and commuters, emphasises those themes. It is the first work by a street artist to be installed inside any Network Rail station.

Commissioned by Network Rail.

Jimmy C was born in England and grew up in Australia. He played a key role in the development of the underground graffiti movement during the early 1990’s. His interests in graffiti and oil painting converged, leading to the development of his signature aerosol pointillist style. Cochran now lives in London and his canvases and walls can be viewed in cities across the world.

Connections: Other local works by Jimmy C include his commemorative mural on Stoney Street, and a portrait of Shakespeare at Bankside, near the Globe Theatre.
