My sister and her husband met in London, while she was living me in SE1 (right under my nose). I'm looking for an artist that paints London (or even SE1) scenes as a belated wedding gift. I am aware of the artist in the window opposite Borough Market entrance, but want to see if there are any recommendations out there.

Any thoughts / ideas ?

Thanks

I can reccomend these local artists both used to be in the same building as me Clink Street Studios.

They have a workshop near "the blue".

Mychaels work featured SE1 extensively and if you ever went to " the Wheatsheaf" you would have seen it.

Mention my name and I'm sure to get a pint out of it

You could also try Southbank printmakers at Gabriel's Wharf, a co-operative of 37 artists. Between them, they always have some London scenes. Linocuts, etchings, woodcuts, silkscreen etc rather than paintings.

Or perhaps Tommy Penton, who did the fabulous Tate to Tate drawing - which is available in book form or boxed as a limited edition. He also paints iconic London buildings.

There is also a good artist based in Hays Galleria, worth having a look at his work.

+1. They also sometimes have some local prints (some of them are by some of the artists in Southbank Printmakers) in the gallery that's right by The Founders Arms, a short walk away from Gabriel's Wharf so you can combine the two.

...if you press it, they will come.

In addition to those mentioned above, try Skylark gallieries at the Oxo Tower (and in Gabriel's Wharf I think). They don't always have that many paintings on display, but I've seen some good ones there and the shops are staffed by the artists, who are generally happy to chat, so they might have some ideas even if there was nothing you liked on display.

The Battersea art fair (in a couple of weeks time)usually has a few London based artists http://www.affordableartfair.com/
