Dylan Izaak’s unique approach to cityscape paintings has made a huge impact on art lovers across Britain. His distinctive view of skylines, iconic buildings and bustling urban scenes encourages us to look at the world through new eyes, and offers a unique take on city life.
“I like to see objects not as one complete entity, but rather as the sum of their parts. This is how I approach my own artwork, exaggerating certain features of buildings and giving them a twist here and there to accentuate the character that I see in it.”
Dylan Izaak Works on aluminium, where he first creates an accurate sketch and then draws over it at speed to almost liberate the image or create ‘happy accidents’ as he likes to describe it, he then reworks the drawing a few times until he is happy with it. His next step is the painstaking process of painting each individual shape in a gloss paint. Once the entire piece has colour he redraws all the lines on top in a black paint. This process takes an average of 100hrs per piece. So although his images are created with diligence and care he successfully manages to keep a sense of rapidity and enthusiasm.
Dylan began his career in the art world by seeking out interesting buildings around the world to draw in his distinctively personal style. He his early years travelling between England and Australia but it was back in England that he established a reputation and his high impact images are now collected across the globe. He was even invited to join an elite group of Official BT Olympic Artists in 2012.
