About the artworkThe art of Rachel Tighe, almost illustration is style, Tighe crosses boundaries. Lovingly she paints vibrant cityscapes, albeit within an abstract cityscape style. Similar in style to Quentin Blake she produces quirky and funky original art with much energy and vibrancy.
Her subject matter focuses on drawing street scenes and cityscapes, in order to do this she has travelled to many places for inspiration and to keep variety in the Architecture within her work; this has taken her to places such as Canada, Barcelona, Venice, London and New York.
â€œThe practise of my work involves capturing life and the architecture around us through the fast paced marks I make on paper. I then develop these images onto canvas and the illogical representations begin to take form and create naÃ¯ve paintings which are full of movement and lifeâ€
