There are two incredible things to point out about this beautiful image from Richard Young. First is the fact that it is not a photograph. With this figurative piece looking so realistic, you would be forgiven for thinking that this was a dramatically edited digital print of a photograph, but in fact, it was created using oil paints. Secondly, this was not painted using fine brushes to add the remarkable texture, but it was painted entirely by using a knife. Remarkable talent aside, this painting features a couple locked by lust whilst dancing the tango, in front of the iconic Parisian art gallery ‘Le Louvre’, transporting the viewer into the streets of the French capital, as they become onlookers to this dramatic event.
Rome: Arco Nascos – Hidden Archway – Michelle Gibbs
This oil painting for sale was made by Art2Arts gallery owner, Michelle Gibbs, after an inspirational trip away to Rome. A place filled with historic charm, it is no surprise that this holiday spawned a series of paintings when she arrived back in the UK! ‘Hidden archway’ highlights a peaceful moment for the artist, found away from the conventional touristic sights and in local backstreet. The piercing light shining down onto the shaded street is captured perfectly, making it a beautiful piece to add to any collection.
Barcelona: Back ally, Barcelona – Bill Mascall
Like Gibbs, Mascall has found inspiration in the unlikely backstreets of a faraway country. Rather than soft and peaceful however, this acrylic painting uses bold colours and block shapes to mimic the vibrant and bustling energy that can be found in Barcelona.
New York: New York taxi 3 – Philip Wilson
No trip around the world would be complete without a visit to the ‘big apple’ perhaps even more vibrant and bustling than the streets of Barcelona! This piece by Philip Wilson focusses on the famous New York taxi, a yellow flash of colour that will be impossible to miss when visiting this concrete jungle.
