Leslie Gerry believes that ordinary street life instils inspiration due to his appreciation of modern, busy metropolises. Attention to detail and capturing every element of a still image are at the forefront of Leslie’s New York designs. At the International Artist’s Book Awards, Leslie highlighted how he enjoys visiting parts of the world that he is entirely unfamiliar with and then soaking in the atmosphere to give him new inspiration. For his New York range, he spent three weeks sketching and photographing everyday life in New York so that he could truly capture the essence of this incredibly unique city. Leslie develops a story behind every image to establish the colouring to match the overall tone of each awe-inspiring image.
Leslie’s many years of artistry have provided him with the tools to apply layering to his images, giving the scenes incredibly detailed shadows and reflections Leslie utilises a collage method by stripping back an image and replacing everything with block colours, then gradually adds in the beautiful shadowing and detail that has become his signature style.
Leslie’s level of skill in setting a tone within his artwork can be attributed to his appreciation of the urban environment. The very idea of skyscrapers, buildings stacked on top of buildings is a testament to human ingenuity, and Leslie’s use of shadows blocking out sunlight in different areas invokes a sense of awe in the beholder.
To do justice to Leslie’s art, we needed to use the absolute highest-quality Fine Bone China when manufacturing the mugs. Anything other than premium-quality China would be a disservice to Leslie Gerry’s ingenious style. If you happen to have an interest in stunning artwork by a world-renowned artist and appreciate high-quality products, our “New York Reflections” range of mugs are sure to be a great addition to your home.
