James Cyril Gardiner is a London-based artist with a turbulent and troubled past, who has now found solace in capturing the beauty of city life. Growing up in a small, quiet village just outside London has resulted in a desire to capture the ever-changing feel of busy, vibrant places. The unique atmosphere created by people passing through in a crowded, yet ultimately lonely, situation… So many lives, overlapping and intertwining, the stationary and the mobile, the sterile and the vibrant, the permanent and the temporary, all juxtaposed with modern concrete, steel and glass structures.

He uses Copic Wide and Original marker pens to capture the city structures, whilst Copic Fineliners are used to suggest the fragile outlines of people passing through.

In 2019 he has started experimenting with different media, including watercolour paint and acrylic paint pens, to create more abstract captures, which will be displayed as and when available.

James’ works are offered for sale only as original, one-off pieces. He says: “I create a piece and as soon as it is finished, I am only interested in the next piece – this one is done. If someone else can then enjoy owning it, then that’s fantastic – I like the idea of the paper I worked on, and the marks I made, then existing in another’s world…”

He looks forward to continuing to capture the essence of the world’s major cities, and displaying his works in exhibitions around the globe, whilst offering the originals for sale via this website.
