My newest edition of the City of Surprises piece - showing the London skyline, with a few 'additions'. Created from an original photograph taken from Greewnich Observatory it shows many of London'd famous landmarks in a line. Throughout the pandemic I thought a lot about connections with the world around us. Many of my family lived abroad so I was unable to see them for two years. And I was unable to travel, one of my great inspirations for my work. So I decided to create a work imagining my favourite city with a few of my favourite international landmarks, places I was unable to get to. You might also notice a slight change to a famous London building - which I am unable to use for legal reasons. The culprit has been replaced with a shark's head. Laser-cut into gold mirror. Please note: this piece is made to order. It can usually be created and delivered in around 3 weeks.

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.
