I love these paintings by the American artist Jeremy Mann. His surroundings play an important role in much of his work and many of his painting are inspired by the streets of downtown San Francisco. Mann is an incredibly talented artist and it’s amazing to see him capture such atmosphere, mood and expression simply with a few brushstrokes.
For me, it’s his use of textures that I love. I could easily get lost in the playful way he paints and I imagine his work is even stronger when seen in real life. He’s also an incredibly prolific artist and his website is filled with a huge amount of work covering a broad range of subjects from cityscapes and landscapes to portraits and figurative studies.
