City Portraits
by Galerie Belvedere
Location: Galerie Belvedere
Artist(s): Brendan NEILAND
Date: 6 Apr - 19 Apr 2014

Brendan Neiland, is a renowned British artist and was Keeper of the Royal Academy of Arts in London. He was appointed Professor of Painting at Brighton University in 1996 and Visiting Professor of Fine Art at Loughborough University in 1998. He is known for his distinct style of painting reflections on water and glass facades of modern buildings, machine parts, car bonnets and the famous London taxis.

Neiland uses architecture to create works that are uniquely pictorial. The subtle relationship between the façade, its environment and its viewers is the concept that he explores and beautifully portrays in his works. His paintings motivate viewers to look at architecture and technology in a completely new dimension and to appreciate its integral part in today’s modern world.

His works have been exhibited at the Royal Academy, Victoria and Albert Museum and the Tate Gallery in London. In 1998 he was commissioned by the Royal Mail to design a postage stamp for them. Several leading corporations and establishments including Rolls Royce, BMW, Limoges, Proctor and Gamble, British Rail, InterCity and CapitaLand have commissioned his works for their corporate collections.
