URBAN LANDSCAPE ARTIST
Angela Wakefield was born in Accrington, Lancashire, in 1978. With an impressive 16 year career as a professional painter, Angela is a celebrated contemporary UK urban artist with an extensive portfolio of original artwork.
Her ability to capture the behaviour of light and a sense of movement and atmosphere within the urban environment is compelling. Her trademark expressive painting style has been described as a form of ‘contemporary realism’, and often focusses on dramatic dawn and dusk urban landscape scenes.
Although Angela painted the industrial towns of Lancashire earlier in her career, it was to be her dynamic paintings of New York and London that resonated with a discerning international audience. The North of England is where Angela still lives and works, and will always be a source of inspiration.
Her artwork is held in private collections across the UK, Europe & the USA, and she has the highest online profile of any urban landscape painter. Her admirers include the Academy Award winning Danny Boyle, and Art Critic & Historian Ian Welland – who, in a recent review in Art of England, described Angela as “…the most instinctive artist of our age.”
“Angela Wakefield is a rising star of British art; her work is receiving acclaimed attention whilst exploring a new reality essence in our counterculture… I was struck by the urbanised 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.”
Please feel free to contact Angela should you have any questions or enquiries regarding any of the paintings for sale, or if you would like to commission her to paint something specific in terms of size and subject.
