While relaxing in a cafe with a coffee, usually the only options available are to engage in conversation or to watch the people walking by outside. But in the Expressions cafe in Kentish Town you can gaze at some great paintings of London instead.
Andy Parker is a London-born landscape artist with a particular fondness for the effect of light in water, capturing both views of the Thames and ponds within various London parks. Parker tries to capture moments of tranquillity in his works and therefore they're perfectly suited for display in a cafe.
Even though Parker is a Londoner, his previous exhibitions have been of landscapes across the UK, so this is a rare chance to see his London works.
Bright Lights Big City by Andy Parker is on display at Expressions Cafe Gallery, 51 Highgate Road, NW5 1RT until 4 January.
