A unique and one of a kind portrait of the famous and popular Manchester based artist L.S. Lowry.
My homage to this fantastic artist has been painted on a 50 x 60 cm canvas using professional artist grade acrylic paint, soft pastel flesh tones complete the face of the subject and bright, contemporary colours in rough impasto palette knife work for the background. The strong line work perfectly complements the expressive, almost "Pop Art" quality of the finished piece.
As a resident of Manchester I have long been immersed in and inspired by Lowry's life and art. His Expressionist portraiture work such as the sublime "Manchester Man" has had a profound influence upon my own artistic journey, so too his loyal determination to document industrial Manchester and its citizens. With this piece I hoped to reference the impact his portraiture work had upon my own style whilst giving a contemporary and modern reboot to the subject.
