Please note that insitu images are purely an indication of how a piece may look

I believe that if you can tell what something is solely by its outline that is the mark of brilliant design. The London Taxi is one of my favourite examples of this. Its shape is iconic. This piece was created from an original photograph of a taxi parked outside Charing Cross Station. I stripped the photograph back leaving a few edges to show its beautful lines and curves. The image is printed on a slim sheet of brushed aluminium, leaving metallic silver lines tracing the taxi’s shape, with the corners of the aluminium rounded to reflect the vehicle’s famous design. London Taxi is made to order. It can usually be created and delivered in around 10-14 days. An aluminium subframe on the back makes it incredibly easy to hang.

Michael Wallner has original artworks for sale with Wychwood Art both in their art gallery and online. Michael has spent more than twenty years in the media industry working on entertainment programmes, talk shows, documentaries, animations and a children’s novel. But creating original and innovative art is his true passion. His latest work celebrates the beauty of the city through the shapes, outlines and colours that define its character. London, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, Miami, Paris and Dubai all feature in Michael’s portfolio. The art is created by digitally manipulating and colouring his own photographs to produce unusual prints on aluminium, reclaimed wood, brass, even 1930’s copper-lite windows. He also creates neon, magnetic, and L.E.D installations. The metal pieces are printed on very thin sheets of brushed aluminium, giving the work an etched appearance. Michael works out of his studio at Wimbledon Art Studios in South London. Recent exhibitions include The Affordable Art Fair (Battersea, Hampstead, Singapore, New York, Milan), The Other Art Fair, and The Open Studios Show at Wimbledon Art Studios, amongst others.
