The Astoria Brixton
Original acrylic on panel by Alan Harris, british artist...
There are few areas in London whose fortunes have had so many twists and turns as Brixton. From being a smart south London suburb with one of the capital’s top shopping streets at the beginning of the 20th century, to the area that became the beating heart of the Windrush generation who came from the Caribbean after the Second World War.
Today Brixton is achingly cool, and is shrugging off its battle-hardened reputation. Brixton Village — locals still call it by its original name Granville Arcade — is now a major London tourist attraction. Situated in part of the famous and now listed covered markets, it is a destination reborn with boutiques, restaurants and cafes sharing the space with South American butchers, Caribbean greengrocers, African stores and English fishmongers. Interesting area to visit and enjoy in London. This painting is a way to enjoy the memories of this great area of London.
A superb gift for art lovers alike.
Alan works with a variety of mediums as oils, watercolours, pastel, mixed media, sculptures and engage the viewer with atmospheric detail.
The painting is sent framed, with a black frame, ready to hang.
