Battling your way out of the tube at Piccadilly Circus can feel less than romantic on a wet London evening, but that’s exactly how landscape painter Mike Bernard makes it seem.
Londonist has reproduced several of Bernard’s collage style renderings of the familiar London locations we pass through most days - and we can’t stop looking at them. Exhibiting at Wimbledon Fine Art until the beginning of April, Bernard’s London subject matter also includes Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Borough Market and Butler’s Wharf.
Dexters’ Design and Interiors team advise sellers and landlords across central London on maximising their property’s appeal. Artwork most definitely plays its part and we can think of several homes that would showcase Bernard’s bold mix of acrylic, oil and watercolour perfectly.
“A high calibre canvas of iconic London plants the potential buyer or tenant firmly in the local” says Denise Neville of Dexters’ Design and Refurbishments office in Mayfair. “Whether you’re marketing a classic period property in Islington or a quirky studio conversion in Chelsea, you’re always selling a slice of London life.”
If you’re busy preparing your London property for a sale or rental valuation and would like the benefit of Dexters’ expertise, we’ve made thousands of homes market ready and would love you to get in touch.
Mike Bernard's solo show is at Wimbledon Fine Art, 41 Church Road, SW19 5DQ until 2 April 2017. If you're in the area, check out Dexters' brand new Wimbledon office, which opened today. We have a prime spot at 12 The Broadway and would love for you to pop by and say hello!
We love these London-centric works by artist Mike Bernard, who uses paintings mixed with collage to create segmented landscapes. His method results in images which look like many photographs of the same place have been overlaid on top of each other, giving a depth to these familiar London sights. It gives his work a different style to traditional landscape painters, while still focusing on the parts of London we know and love. Mike Bernard's solo show is at Wimbledon Fine Art, 41 Church Road, SW19 5DQ until 2 April 2017. Entrance is free.
