The Birdcage

This piece is part of Richard Berner’s ‘Beasts of Brighton’ series, a collection of artworks inspired by popular landmarks from his hometown of Brighton. In this instance, the focus of the piece is ‘The Birdcage’ – the old-fashioned nickname given to the bandstand found on the seafront.

In The Birdcage, Berner demonstrates his talent for creating intricate artworks that sing with detail, ensuring you will always find something new to delight at every time you admire them. The image is inspired by the bandstand’s Victorian architecture and its popularity as a wedding venue…this time for a pair of lusty seagulls. The black and white piece is beautifully-complimented by the vibrant gull on the roof, preparing to take flight.

This giclée print is from a limited edition of 50, signed by the artist.

    About the artist
    +

    Brighton-based artist, Richard Berner is an internationally collected illustrator and painter best known for his detailed pieces where a larger image is created from hundreds of signature hand-drawn figures or ‘champs’.

    After studying Fine Art and Animation Berner has gone on to create a range of artworks from children's book illustrations, to limited edition screen prints, surreal portraits on canvas to large-scale wall murals. All in a variety of media from ink on paper to acrylics on wood and glass.

    Drawing inspiration from a colourful array of cultural iconography – from Star Wars to Disney, British landmarks to cult celebrity – Berner creates works which bristle with imagination and eccentricity.

    With his intricate, ink drawings as a base, Berner brings each work to life with the addition of hand-applied colour and texture, building up layers of paint drips and splatters, for a dynamic and unique aesthetic.

    He describes the scenes in his artwork as ‘surreal architecture’ and cites the masters, Dali and MC Escher as his biggest inspirations. It is easy to see this influence in the dream-like scenes he creates which often depict a dystopian view of his hometown of Brighton.
