Breno

Breno, Oil on Canvas Breno is a great guy, talented musician and the founder of Lost Gravity. I got to chat with him over coffee and learned so much about the busking scene in London and music in general!

The Lloyds Building, In the Evening

In 2012 I was commissioned to paint two versions of The Lloyds Building for the Going for Gold Ball. Right from the start, I faced a serious challenge – I was to paint two nearly identical scenes that could be featured either individually or as a pair. I took a day to explore the building’s…

I imagine “Gaslight London”…

Impressions of Barcelona
