Neil Whitehead - Urban Landscape Artist. I work in watercolour, ink and acrylic in South West England. I love the fusion of the modern age framed by listed buildings, historic shop fronts, archways and spires. Born through 'urban sketching', my fast and fluid style is all about rhythm and expression. My work is not about a photographic representation but a more original and artful take on the form and colour of our towns and cities.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I am a UK-born artist now living in Taunton, South West UK
Known for my urban landscape artworks and architectural based studies, I regularly contribute to the Urban Sketchers initiative of 'on location' sketching as well as exhibiting nationally and online.
ABOUT MY PROCESS
The towns and cities we live in is my inspiration. The tension, the light, the depth, the anger, the decay, the majesty, the height, the people, the love, the sky, the crowds, the bustle, the atmosphere, the moment.
Rapid mark making and raw paint application techniques help fuel my lucid and fast painting style.
In the Media
I’m the recipient of multiple International Magazine biographies for my urban themed observational artwork and a recent winner of the 'The Holy Art' ATOPOS event.
