Beautifully painted onto aluminium and framed in stylish black, this glowing original oil painting by Paul Kenton gorgeously captures the electric warmth of Piccadilly, London in the drizzling rain.
Bright strokes of white, yellow, orange, and red, entice the observer to wander into its buzzing cafès and shops, characterised by bold architectural lines and fonts. This original artwork is full of colour, texture and depth which makes it ideal to hang in a rang of spaces with warm colours or light, cool tones.
Paul's unique painterly style, where he is able to convey the energy of entire cities in his bold strokes, places him within the wider history of Modern Art and Impressionism. Challenging the realism of 16th century Renaissance artists, impressionist painters like Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet intended to capture the beauty of fleeting moments, shimmering lights and first impressions of a scene. What's more, the industrial revolution and growth of the metropolis allowed artists more dynamic and unsettled scenes to study from.
In the same way that Monet used small strokes of oil paint to capture the smoky interiors of Paris' railway station, Paul Kenton uses bold and abstract lines of paint to capture the small flickering lights of a city in its puddles of water and windows.
