A limited edition canvas on board by popular self-taught artist Andrew Kinsman.
Inspired by Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists including Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec and Cézanne, Andrew's latest collection, Café Society, focuses on the cafes and restaurants of Paris. Aiming to capture the colour palette and sense of style of the 1950s, Andrew says his lack of formal training helps him to capture the perfect snapshot of real life.
"Being self-taught, I personally feel unconstrained by subject matter and style," he explains. "I love working and reworking until I'm happy with the detail, colour and contrast of light and dark. Seeing this come to life over time is the ultimate thrill of being an artist."
