Between exhibitions, fairs and commissions, it's been a few years since Brum-based artist, Rachel Tighe, created a painting capturing her home turf. "I have a new found love and perspective on the city of Birmingham lately and having some time last month, I thought I would tweet and ask people what they would like to see me paint. I went from there." Gas Street Basin is an original acrylic on a box frame canvas that measures 3ft x 2ft. As Rachel only ever works in originals, the bright and lively scape is a complete one off, and yours for £795. Based on people's suggestions it looks like there's more city art on the way. "I'm hoping to capture more areas, such as Ikon in spring, Moseley, and other viewpoints of Gas Street. Also, with its ever changing architecture, I plan to do another cityscape to document Brum's development." Watched space this consider.
