about this painting:
CAFE IN THE OLD CITY - SET OF 3
URBANISATION OF ART
Art appeared as a means of transferring the beauty of the world to our descendants. First people painted things that surrounded them like wild animals, plants and forests. We are not so different from our ancestors. We continue to be inspired by the world around.
However, our world has changed drastically in comparison to the Ancient world. We have built enormous powerful cities. It is a well-known fact that today the majority of people live in cities, not in the countryside.
So, there is no wonder that there are as many beautiful canvases of city life as those of peaceful meadows and mysterious forests. Let us look at some examples of contemporary abstract city paintings.
- Bernhard Vogel. A painter from Austria founds inspiration while traveling to different cities. He is extremely deft in using aquarelle, which is believed to be the most difficult paint to work with. His paintings are always dynamic and full of light. His specific manner adds mystery and magic to any, even the most ordinary, city scenery.
- Kal Gajoum was born in Lebanon. He creates energetic and bright paintings of city life with a palette knife. This way he avoids distinct contours and adds life to his artworks.
- Jeff Rowland is an artist who is in love with the rain. He always paints different cities that he visited under the rain. For him, a rainy city is a symbol of sadness and solitude. However, it is also the most fascinating time when the city completely changes its face and shows its true soul.
- Leonid Afremov is one of the most famous urban painters of our times. He is often inspired by city landscapes to create expressive and vibrant painting that can best describe the atmosphere of a given place. He always leaves a tiny bit of his soul on canvas. That is why all his paintings are so sunny and positive.
For example, look at this canvas of a city café. It has three pieces so you can vary how you will hang it in your house. You can put them all together or place different pieces of the painting on different walls turning your room into a magnificent artistic puzzle.
On the canvases, you can see a pretty European street with a French café and a couple of people wandering around. It is evening, and the street is lit with a pleasant lantern light. When you are looking at this painting, you feel like you are on holiday somewhere in France, and you feel peaceful and relaxed.
