With experience living in both London and New York, Georgia Peskett is a talented British oil painter working with cityscape art today. Her work shines a light on some of the forgotten corners of the city and its inhabitants, capturing the rushed and busy feel of the city through her use of blurred lines and brushstrokes.
If you’re interested in adding something a little more abstract to your collection, then the work of Noemi Safir is a good place to start. Using a vibrant colour palette, Safir creates fragmented images that offer a unique perspective on urban landscapes and the inhabitants of cities.
The huge populations and wide cultural offering of cities make them a natural home for artists, and many have taken paint to canvas to try and capture the atmosphere of the city around them. Cityscape art can refer to any art that depicts urban life, whether that’s a quiet street corner, a busy shopping street or the city skyline. These images tell the story of the inhabitants of the city, their relationship to their surroundings and what it means to live in a modern urban environment.
