An exotic fruit and vegetable stall, Brixton Market - drawing; pastel drawing

Description:
David Williams' drawing depicts a stall of exotic vegetables including 'Jamaican selected green bananas', sugar cane, sweet potatoes and spinach. This is one of many stalls in Brixton Market that cater for south London's Afro-Caribbean community. Williams said of his drawing: 'Beneath the railway bridges that criss-cross Brixton there is a lively colourful environment. All my pictures drawn during the summer of 1988 attempt to document the everyday life of the market and the characters who live and work in it'.
