I have a love/hate relationship with cities but I have always loved cityscape paintings. Cities are like giant still life pictures with ants crawling all over them. Ants in cars, ants in buildings, ants on phones, ants crossing the street.. they’re everywhere. They’re usually as ugly as they are beautiful. Anyway, enough rambling, here’s some cityscape paintings by artists from around the world..
They’re a random collection of cityscape paintings from dead famous painters through to alive and unknown artists. Feel free to suggest more cityscape painters in the comments.
Jeremy Mann cityscape – Construction #3 – Painter based in California. See more of his work at his website here.
Paul Balmer cityscape – High as the Horizon. I have always loved this guy’s NYC cityscapes. See more of his paintings at his website here.
Mitchell Long cityscape – Ashville NC parking garage view. As much as I dislike facebook and the people that run it, I love that I discover so many great artists like Mitchell on it. He also does some really interesting interior paintings. His website can be found here.
Valerio D’Ospina – Chicago Alley. Valerio does a lot of urban, industrial, gritty works that are really nice. See the artist’s website here.
I know there’s a bunch of great cityscape paintings that I left out but the post was getting long and I’m getting hungry!
