Flats by the railway
Williams decided to dedicate this week’s UNDER THE HAMMER [Un]original to Edward Hopper; a famous American realist painter from the twentieth century, especially known for his oil painting (he was also a printmaker). Hopper put a lot of interpretation in his work, painting his own reality – Boredom and empty cityscape. He was fascinated by the American urban scene and urban architecture and cityscapes were to influence most of his work.
Back in his twenties, Simon studied architecture at Liverpool University and has drawn a fair amount of buildings. And so for this week, inspired by ‘House by the railroad’, Simon has drawn ‘Flats by the railway’ the representation of a building located in Camden.
If the artwork doesn’t get sold before next Monday 11am, it will be destroyed.
