I am having an exhibition of my paintings at The Crystal in London’s Royal Victoria Docks from Tuesday the 8th of November to Sunday the 20th of November 2016

About The Crystal – one of the world’s most sustainable buildings

Due to its innovative architecture and technology, the Crystal is one of the world’s most sustainable buildings, achieving Outstanding BREEAM accreditation and Platinum LEED accreditation – the most stringent standards for sustainable design and construction.

The background to my exhibition

Earlier this year, I was commissioned by Siemens to paint four views of The Crystal. It was very a challenging commission due to the unique shape of the building. It does not have single vertical or horizontal that I could see, and if that was not enough, it is all made of blue glass too. Reflections were flying about all over the place.

It all turned out well in the end, and these paintings with a number of my other London scenes will be on display in the permanent exhibition area of the site.

My London scenes will all be available to buy too as well as prints of The Crystal. Below is a selection of the other paintings that will be on display and available.

It was a really enjoyable project to do and I hope you can come along to see these and some of my other original works for yourself.
