West Pier Song Blue



‘West Pier Song Blue’

This art print depicts the remains of Brighton’s West Pier. It was the first leisure pier to be built in Brighton in 1886. Cormorants have made the West Pier their home, hence you can spot some in my print. And in the horizon the Rampion Wind Farm makes its appearance as the newest addition to this seascape.

I created this print from my original ink drawings to which I apply colour digitally and then print on fine art paper using archival inks. I issue the formats A0, A1, A2, A3  & A4  as limited editions of 100 where I individually sign and number each print.

Brighton’s West Pier

The industrial revolution brought social and technological advances. Among these, the Victorian championed the promotion of well being. For this reason many seaside towns built leisure piers across the United Kingdom inviting all segments of society to enjoy the benefits of clean air and gentle exercise. The West Pier, possibly the most beautiful in Britain,  stands today, sadly, as a bare and weathered wrought iron structure.

In 2019 I held an exhibition at the West Pier Centre where I showed my work. My interest in this charismatic structure is well documented in numerous prints where I have featured the remains of the West Pier.

Photograph of the base drawings for the art print. I draw these on A3 sheets of specialised marker paper with calligraphic brushes, fine-line ink pens, sponges, sand paper and other materials. The medium is watercolour, ink and charcoal. I scanned these to form the main line work and patterns in the final print.
