The Royal Pavilion, also known as the Brighton Pavilion, is a former royal residence located in Brighton, England.
The eccentric Brighton Pavilion, also known as the Royal Pavillion.
I love it's meringue shaped minarets and dome, which lend themselves perfectly to aluminium art. The shape of the historic building are instantly recognisable the world over.
The images takes me back to a bygone era. With the people relaxing on the grass it reminds me of a time without all the pressures of the modern world and its technology.
Created from an original photograph and printed on brushed aluminium, giving the piece an etched effect. The people are coloured in exactly the same colours as they were wearing on the day.
Please note: this piece is made to order. It can usually be created in around 10-14 days.
Beginning in 1787, it was built in three stages as a seaside retreat for George, Prince of Wales, who became the Prince Regent in 1811. It is built in the Indo-Saracenic style prevalent in India for most of the 19th century. The current appearance of the Pavilion, with its domes and minarets, is the work of architect John Nash, who extended the building starting in 1815
