‘Formal Portraits’ – ‘Johnny Twenty-Four’

Johnny Twenty-Four is a local legend, or ‘leg-end’ as some call him. He is the oldest surviving tenant of Trellick Tower, a grand (in)famous example of 60’s Brutalist Architecture that rises above the Grand Union canal in West London. Johnny moved in there in 1974 and hasn’t moved out yet. He dresses in layers of cowboy/biker-inspired clothing, liberally sprinkled and stabbed with badges, pins, chains, stickers and found objects that he ferrets out from the market on Portobello and Golborne Road
