The Rainy Cityscapes of Melbourne.

Australian painter Mike Barr focuses his work almost exclusively on rainy cityscapes, the moments of hazy gray that become illuminated by a city’s cars and traffic lights.


There is a unity found in these dreary urban landscapes, a similarity of imagery which it makes it difficult to pinpoint which city is being captured.
The city featured here however is Melbourne, a city Barr often focuses on in his umbrella spotted pieces.
You can see more of Barr’s paintings on his Facebook and website.
