About

Angela Wakefield | BA(Hons) Fine Art | Born 1978

Angela Wakefield is a leading contemporary urban landscape painter from the UK. In a recent front cover feature in Art of England, Art Critic Ian Welland concludes his assessment of her work by saying, “Angela Wakefield is the most instinctive artist of our age”

At 38, Angela is a very collectible artist with a growing profile, producing enduring representations of contemporary urban landscapes. As such, Angela’s original paintings of New York, London and the North of England are being acquired by art collectors from across the UK, Europe & USA.

“Angela Wakefield is one of the leading urban landscape painters of her generation”

Micky Middleton, Red Gallery, Buckinghamshire

 “Northern Art is not just limited to the gritty grind of the decaying industrial landscape… up and coming artists such as Angela Wakefield are continuing the legacy of great Northern art”

David Jupe-Blandford, Art Collector, Cumbria

“Her work is becoming extremely collectible and her subject matter strikes a strong chord with many onlookers”

Sue McAllister, Art Gallery Director, Surrey

“Angela Wakefield is a rising star of British art… I have not seen such arrangement in art since viewing paintings by Edward Hopper”

Ian Welland, Writer & Art Historian

“Angela depicts the ordinary in an extra ordinary way which is a testament to her skill and vision”

Mike Smith, Art Dealer, Manchester

“Certainly this fine body of new work, as with many of the artist’s earlier paintings, will become highly collectible”
