“This portrait was conceived very spontaneously one evening, while I was coming back with my family from a trip to the Cinema in North London. I was suddenly fascinated by the beautiful intricate patterns of the ceramic tiles in the background and by its brightness, which highly contrasted with the outfit of both the figures, at the same time as exalting them. I also really loved the expression of both father and daughter. This very temporary moment was caught while waiting for a train to arrive at Walthamstow Central station, hence the title.”
