City of Lights, London is an original contemporary cityscape painting by Marc Todd. This is a dynamic and expressionistic painting featuring a night view of London and Tower Bridge as see from The Shard. The use of blue in the painting has been kept fresh and evenly toned to create a strong contrast with the white marks, and deliver a very contemporary take on the subject.
Marc Todd is a contemporary landscape painter, living and working in the city of Bath. Much of Marc Todd’s art work is based on subjects and locations in and around Bath, London, and the South West of England. He takes his primary inspiration from structure, texture and composition, and has a love for the application of vivacious colour palettes, dramatic and contrasting light effects, and dynamic mark-making to create aesthetically captivating surfaces. Marc Todd conceives his work ‘in situ’, and is always based upon real places observed first hand. In recent times, Marc has focused on creating cityscapes, particularly of London, and often on large canvases, blending a unique range of painting techniques to produce a truly distinct and modern aesthetic. These paintings capture the multi-layered dynamism of the ‘living’ city and combine a rigorous attention to physical and geographical detail with an overall harmony of surface effect. Marc has sold work to collectors internationally, both private and corporate, and exhibits his work on a regular basis. Originally trained in graphic design, Marc previously worked as a Creative Director for a number of large London based advertising agencies, before setting up his own creative consultancy advising clients including the BBC, Dow Jones International and Hearst Publishing.
