After a decade producing concept paintings, Birmingham-based artist Mark Hickman, decided on what's known in the artistic world as a 'radical' change and turned his brush-wielding attention to producing a series of paintings exploring atmosphere and light. Now favouring landscapes in oil, Mark's exhibiting six pieces which cover Paris, London, Venice and fair 'ol Brum as part of Purple Gallery's Christmas exhibition. Sunset view Towards BT Tower is an original oil on canvas, and it looks a lot like Mark will have had to break in to one of Snow Hill's towers in order to capture the scape from this angle. No need to call anyone though, right? Make the JQ's skyline your wall's skyline for £595.
