London-based artist Simon Quadrat primarily paints urban landscapes whose exaggerated perspective and foreboding desolation are in some ways reminiscent of the Metaphysical surrealism pioneered by Giorgio de Chirico.

Quadrat spent his career in law and has only been painting full-time since 2000. The work is inspired by documentaries and archive photographs of post-WWII London, the period of his childhood, but the subject matter is invented and any narrative merely suggested. See more of his work here.
