Hello city adventure art lovers!
My name is Mark Base, and I'm the guy behind this website. Let me just take a moment to explain what drove me to create this site in the first place. I really like art, and especially images of city scenes, industrial 'wastelands', and little details and perspectives that have a distinctively urban visual flavour. They can be gritty and edgy, fun and funky, or simply hauntingly beautiful.
a bit really crap at painting, and I'm not even a good enough photographer to give myself the lofty label of 'amateur' (I'm more about writing and music). But I'm fortunate enough to have a few friends who are photographers and painters. They do excellent work, featuring different cities around the world. I love their stuff, and have started collecting some of their work.
Basically, I created this site because I wanted to share some of these cool scenes (and promote the artists and photographers behind the eyes and lenses). I'm convinced that there are many of you out there who'll love this stuff, too.
I made this! (Well, kind of...)
One of my friends (Robert Mondoux) even created some paintings from photos for me. In the photo on this page, you'll see one called Coffee in Maimö (Sweden - where I'm currently based). He's more than happy for people to commission a painting from a photo. So, maybe you'd like to submit one of your own photos or a part of your city for him to paint?
Take it from me, there's nothing quite like actual paintings on canvas from photos that you've taken yourself!
Whatever you're into, I hope that the various works of art on this site inspire you as much as they inspire me. Enjoy your visit, and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. I can be reached at email@example.com.
