British Art and Artists at Red Rag Gallery
Artist: Adrian SYKES

Adrian Skyes was born on Merseyside in 1970. He studied at Bath College of Fine Art.

Inspiration for many of Adrian paintings are the result direct observation from his extensive travels across Europe. Specifically Skyes is inspired by landscape and architecture which are captured in his paintings as somewhat surreal, quirky and often humorous settings.

Talking about his paintings Adrian says: "My extensive portfolio of art work covers a wide range of form and images; from my explorations of light and dark in the intricately detailed black and white drawings, to the fascinating land of the imagination where I transport the viewer into a world of darkly humorous and quirky characters as they play out their wit on the paper. I stamp my idiosyncratic style on my favoured subjects: buildings, and shine on them a new and interesting light. My paintings often pay homage to the beauty and diversity of the varied areas in which I have lived and travelled, including paintings of France, Italy and London. In my cityscape paintings, I hope to capture the essence of places, the extraordinary and ordinary aspects of great cities without labouring on the mundane, hence the playful moving of buildings and eliminations to suit the final condensed composition, very much in the 'Capriccio' style. I seek to achieve the sense of standing on an ordinary rooftop overlooking backyards and everyday life, being able to observe a place’s highlights whilst being removed from them."

Adrian Skyes has won a number of awards including: First Prize - The Bristol Art Prize 2013; Finalist - Young Masters Art Prize 2012; First Prize - The Bath Art Prize 2010. He was also selected in 2011 from over 1000 artists to appear in the 2012 BBC2 series ‘Show Me The Monet’.
