San Francisco-based Jeremy Mann is one of those classic artists whose work is instantly recognisable, no matter what subject he paints.

These stunning oil paintings from his series Cityscapes demonstrate his unmistakable style – dark yet atmospheric works, created with using a wide range of techniques including surface staining, the use of solvents to wipe away paint, and the application of broad, gritty marks with an ink brayer.

Mann’s rain-soaked urban portrayals of city life are certainly his most celebrated artworks. But did you know he also paints portraits, still-life and other landscapes? You should definitely check out more of his beautifully vivid paintings on his website.
