Painted Cities: Illustrated Street Art Around the Worldby Lorna Brown

Lorna Brown is an artist specialising in watercolour architectural paintings that represent something other than just bricks and mortar. With a keenness for adventure, she likes to hunt for new places to paint; buildings with character and story that represent the people who have occupied these spaces in the past, present and future.

Lorna has travelled around the world to produce this collection of illustrations of street art in urban landscapes. Visiting London, Bristol, Helsinki, Berlin, Cairo, Bethlehem, New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Christchurch, Melbourne, Painted Cities demonstrates how the architecture shapes the unique street art in each city and tells the story of the painters and people who live there.

Lorna Brown is a travelling artist. With a background in technical illustration, she works traditionally with pen and watercolour and specialises in architectural landscapes.

Includes an introduction to the architecture and street art in each city.

Packed with hand-painted watercolour illustrations.

Features 11 cities around the world.

The author's work has been exhibited at Brick Lane Gallery, London.

MARKET: Concrete Canvas; Trespass.
