City Life: Artists impressions of urban life

Posted by David Smith on 31st October 2012

Since the dawn of industrialisation, artists have reflected on life in urban centres, from Edward Hopper's Nighthawks to Whistler's etchings of the Thames. Here at Rise Art we've compiled some of our favourite works on or around life in the city:

Balloons and Bridges by Kerry Royle

Manhattan by Chris Jelf

George Sq. 2 by Flora Alexander

S - Shard by Tobias Till

St Pauls and Blackfriars Bridge from Oxo beach by Kate Bowen
