It Took This Artist 3 Months To Complete A Detailed Dundee Cityscape

Carl Lavia aka ‘Sketch’ is a self-taught sketch artist and I am a photographer. We have joined forces to form the #69cities project.

Carl is sketching in large-scale every single city in the UK – all 69 – and I am documenting the entire process. Each cityscape takes a month to 3 months to research, map and produce, we then work hard to ensure that the artworks are put on public display for all to enjoy.

Birmingham – was completed in Sept 2016 and was on show in the Birmingham Museum and Art gallery, this artwork is moving to a new location soon. Manchester – now showing in Manchester’s iconic Central Library. Edinburgh – showing now in Edinburgh’s Central Library.

Dundee is the latest cityscape completed, showing now at the McManus Art Gallery and Museum. It took 3 months and over 100 pens to create this 3-meter cityscape.
