Jonathan Pike is broadly acknowledged to be one of the finest architectural painters of his generation. A watercolourist first and foremost, he also paints in gouache and oils. Jonathans attention to architectural heritage and the decay of manmade objects is perfectly articulated in his work, from a classical structure in Venice to a British coastal scene. Texture and light are brought together to create dramatic renderings where attention to detail contributes to the passion and emotion of the scene.
An avid traveler, Jonathan specializes in cityscapes of Rome, Florence, Havana, London, Dublin and elsewhere, but it is his exquisite Venetian scenes that have attracted a particularly keen following amongst collectors worldwide. Jonathan first visited Venice in 1975, and has returned on many occasions to produce his mesmeric studies of the atmosphere and light of this unique city.
