This original landscape painting by Carlos Arriaga depicts a spectacular, fantasy cityscape scene, combing familiar Chelsea landmarks. Incorporating the stylish attributes of the area, Arriaga describes the boroughs best architectural features in this piece. The buildings are rendered with impressive realist detail, celebrating the attractive appearance of the area. Decorative tiles, characterful Parisian accents and the classic red brick that adorn traditional architectural monuments, such as the Art Deco inspired Michelin building, are made the focal point in this artwork. The artist infuses the scene with an illusionistic quality by rearranging the subject matter to create an impression of it from an uniquely interesting point of view. Combining urban and natural imagery, the artist employs a muted palette of subdued beige tones to create an idealised version of the popular district. This contemporary piece combines oils and pencil on canvas and is signed by the artist, ready to be displayed.
