It's as if Londoners want a shinier, swankier, more designer version of their city reflected back at them. Which is exactly what I love about the work of artist, Trevor Burgess, which doesn't celebrate obviously beautiful buildings and scenes, but instead highlights the beauty in ordinary, everyday living.

About Trevor Burgess: Recent regional prize winner of the The Discerning Eye, most of Trevor's work is about the ordinary business of living. Trevor is interested in a painting that explores relationships, people, contemporary urban spaces.
Catch Trevor's work in person at an upcoming contemporary art and design show in, haha, south London (and – of course – in the rather chichi Herne Hill) over the weekend of 12/13 May. You can also see what's on show at the website of hosts, Cavaliero Finn as well as getting full details of where the event takes place here.
It's a departure from my usual, more affordable picks (average price of the paintings above is £650), but I just love these paintings and wanted to share them. And looking at pictures is free. It is only buying them that costs...
