Rachel Tighe is a 27 year-old Urban Landscape Artist based in Birmingham. She graduated from University with a First-Class Degree in Fine Art in 2008 and has, since then, been developing her process and creating new work.
Her subject matter focuses on drawing street scenes and cityscapes in her naive style. In order to do this, she has travelled to many places for inspiration and to keep variety in the architecture within her work; this has taken her to places such as Canada, Barcelona, Venice, London and New York.
Rachel is now currently exhibiting her work around the UK and is represented by eight respectable galleries. Her work can also be seen at Affordable Arts Fairs up and down the country as well as internationally.
"The practice of my work involves capturing life and the architecture around us through the fast paced marks I make on paper. I then develop these images onto canvas and the illogical representations begin to take form and create naive paintings which are full of movement and life".
