Piccadilly Circus sets a precedent for his later works in the ‘Landmark’ series, presenting London through both a humorous and emotional lens. The image depicts a central Eros statue, around which buses, advertisements and traffic swirl in red, white and blue. Egonu depicts a birds-eye view of the lively and restless city.
The Landmark Series was pivotal for Egonu. Uzo’s work harmoniously combines aesthetic traditions of both the West and Africa, reshaping the definition of Modernist art. Piccadilly Circus exemplifies these stylistic components and echoes the Cubist movement, Nigerian ornamentation and 1960s British pop-art, all of which greatly inspired Egonu's work.
