Julian Bovis is an urban landscape artist. He studied Architecture at the University of Plymouth and spent 20 years art directing national newspapers on Fleet Street. In his forties he returned to art fulltime and began working on a new series of large format pieces, influenced by Tadao Ando, Luis Barragán, David Hockney and John Piper.
"Architecture as art has always fascinated me. From David Hockney's "Two Deckchairs, Calvi" to Joni Mitchell's "Hissing of Summer Lawns", I grew up falling in love with artists who could harness the aesthetic of a pedestrian landscape and create something truly original."
Julian's super size pen & ink urban landscapes cover a wide range of subjects including famous landmarks, historical buildings, rivers, gardens, bridges and residential streets. His haunting black and white images are finished with bright bolts of colour, shocking them into life and creating a unique style.
His in depth studies of the city concentrate on scale, order, simplicity and repetition. By removing the human form, the true beauty and honesty of the landscape is revealed.
