Starling Murmuration

Chris Snow is a Brighton based artist and we have had his work for a month now, sorry it’s taken me so long to let you know.

He is inspired by the city’s life, as he sees it… and his love of maps. His images evoke a sense of familiarity and affection for the locations we recognise and that are part of our daily lives.

The maps are accurate, based on genuine mapping from different eras, the line drawings of the buildings and people are an affectionate reminder of why we live here and love our beautiful city and its surrounding countryside.

My favourite image is the ,Starling Murmuration by West Pier when I first moved to Brighton I lived over the Regency fish restaurant and was mesmerized by the synchronised swarming of the starlings in the early evening.

Lots of different images including the London Road Viaduct and Embassy Court are part of his collection also From Devils Dyke to Brighton which has a particularly intense sky. There is also a large print Brighton Index Map that combines several locations around the city.

So all in all a great addition to our range of prints. We have had a fantastic reaction to his work from both residents and visitors his print runs aren’t huge so pop along and see his work.
Prices start at £50.00 unframed.
