Mark Melvin is a Greenwich based impressionist cityscape painter predominately working in oil on board. He knows the South East London streets like the back of his hands.


 Having grown up in Deptford and Greenwich, Melvin has spent his life walking up and down the banks of the Thames and been inspired by the urban city landscape.

His interests’ lie in the ever-evolving architectural scenes and shapes the City has to offer. With a keen observation documenting the not so glamorous areas now lost to gentrification. Melvin paints his own arenas with an uplifting and recognisable backdrop London Skyline.

For years Melvin worked with only five muted colours creating a very distinctive identity and palette. In this, surprisingly, his first Solo exhibition in London Melvin has added a new hue to a selection of the works elevating the graphic element with new vibrancy as buildings become strong blocks of colour enhancing the framing of each inner city setting.

We are absolutely thrilled to present this exhibition and cannot wait to see this entirely new collection and the next developmental stage of Melvin’s career.

We would like to invite you all to attend the Opening Night drinks reception which will be held at Ben Oakley Gallery 9 Turnpin Lane Greenwich London SE10 9JA Friday 13th April 2018 from 7pm -10pm
