Intricate backstreets and architectural passages make wonderfully familiar painting subjects. Often incorporating the presence of people, street scenes emphasise the sometimes overlooked beauty of city streets and views and bring fresh perspectives on the subject. Much like cityscapes, street art celebrates the urban within our world and showcases the wonder of our urban landscapes. From the gorgeous backwaters of Venice in Rafael Fiore’s oil paintings to the infamous industrial vistas of Sean Durkin’s paintings after L.S. Lowry, Forest Gallery have a wonderful collection of street scene paintings available to view online and in the gallery.
