Building Beautiful

Andy Fergusson

It is rare that I get excited about an artist that paints landscapes or buildings, but when I do, it’s always something truly special. Painter Andy Fergusson is obsessed with straight lines, color, and realism. His gorgeous, textural paintings of buildings near his home in the Cotswolds and favorite city, Venice, capture the man-made beauty of vintage storefronts and residences alike.

Fergusson’s building subjects range from unassuming to full of character, but he paints each with such loving detail, there’s no missing their beauty. I love a little artful decrepitude, so I’m completely in.

You can see more of Andy Fergusson’s fantastic paintings on his website and on Instagram and Facebook.

  1. These are really impressive. They are just the right side of artistic for photo-real cityscapes. The Glasgow School of Art is one of my favourite buildings in the world (I was bereft when it burned down) and The Shambles in York is one of my favourite spots in Britain so clearly this artist is drawn to the same sort of places as I am. Now I need someone to teleport me to Venice so I can test that theory.

  2. This is the type of art that I went to school for. Never got close to this artist but I did enjoy art school, I also enjoyed looking at his work today. I hope when Laura gets transported to Venice she will let me how it was done. I want to get to Israel. Hal
