Angela Wakefield is one of the leading urban landscape painters of her generation. Early in her career, Angela focused on painting the industrial north and the historic cities of the UK such as Edinburgh, York & Manchester. However, her recent work is based on scenes from London & New York and promises to be her most dynamic and impressive series to date.
“Angela Wakefield is a rising star of British art; her work, mainly urban scenes of the North of England, is receiving acclaimed attention whilst exploring a new reality essence in our counterculture… I was struck by the urbanized genre, the scattering of light in form, and the sheer reality of scene. I have not seen such arrangement in art since viewing paintings by Edward Hopper.”
Ian Welland, Writer & Art Historian
Angela explains, “I am inspired by the vast array of luminous man-made colours that transform our towns and cities from bleak and depressing spaces by day to vibrant and colourful fairgrounds by night.”
With industry professionals and collectors paying an avid interest, there is an acceptance that her artwork represents a sound financial investment. She is a young artist with a growing national reputation, producing work that resonates with a broad range of people, offering enduring representations of contemporary landscapes.
