10 Mind-Twisting Paintings Of Buildings That Explore The Boundaries Of Magic And Reality

Published 12 months ago

Lee Madgwick, an accomplished artist, has been drawing since childhood and exploring the world of painting for the last 15 years. His distinct style quickly developed, giving birth to a mesmerizing collection of surreal and mind-bending buildings.

Drawn to abandoned and isolated places, Madgwick finds beauty in the overlooked structures within towns and cities. By placing these buildings in new settings with brooding skies, he creates a mysterious and captivating ambiance. Influenced by Northern European artists from the 18th and 19th centuries, such as Caspar David Friedrich and Jacob van Ruisdael, Madgwick’s artwork evokes wonder and introspection.

Using water-mixable oils and acrylics, Madgwick describes his work as ‘imagined realism.’ He paints the skies using his hands and fingertips, adding a unique texture to his creations. After weeks of drying, he focuses on detailed areas with acrylic paint, leaving room for interpretation and inviting viewers to ponder the narratives of these enigmatic places.

Madgwick’s talent has earned him recognition worldwide. He exhibited in prestigious shows like the Royal Academy of Arts and the Derwent Art Prize, and his work appeared on album covers and book covers. He even showcased his art at Banksy’s ‘Dismaland’ project.

His upcoming solo exhibition at the Brian Sinfield Gallery in Burford, Oxfordshire, UK, promises to be a celebration of his imaginative brilliance. As Madgwick continues to inspire with his enchanting artwork, art enthusiasts eagerly await his next captivating creations.
