"Diverted Traffic in Shoreditch" by Iker Garcia Barrenetxea

I painted this street scene of London a few months ago. I used mixed media and I recycled a door wich I cut in two as a the frame to stretch canvas over it. The result: a hard surface to work on that allowed me to even use marker pen, pencil and acrylic paint. The location is Old Street facing the junction with Shoreditch High Street.

And this is one of the fisrt paintings I did when I arrived in London. This is back in 2001 and is the view from Hackney Wick Train Station.
At the time I didn´t know this area at all. I ended up here under random circumstances. Funny enough seven years after, I became a local of Hackney Wick and today, well now, as I am wrtitting this I can look over the window and almost see the same scene. Maybe I should start thinking about painting the destiny...

"Mare Street" by Iker García Barrenetxea


I painted this street scene in 2003 and today this oil painting found its place in San Sebastian, where I am spending some time with friends and family. I´d like to apologize to those that have checked my blog during the last days as I´ve not posted new things.
Have a nice week!
