After Hours – The Art of George Townley To Open At Gallery 1988 On April 7th, 2023

George Townley is a London-based illustrator turning heads and gaining notoriety in the art industry for his thought-provoking artwork. Despite living in England, he’s always loved sharing his vision of Los Angeles from an outsider’s perspective, which he captures in full detail in his stunning pieces added to his exhibition entitled “After Hours.” The collection will be on full display for art enthusiasts to see and experience firsthand with Gallery1988, a pop culture gallery in the Los Angeles area.

When asked about his work, George said, “In my latest collection, I’m placing the focus on the atmosphere and what makes Los Angeles such an exciting and vibrant place that people want to see, each piece gives a unique look at some of the most iconic landmarks in the city and gives locals an idea of how visitors perceive the city of Los Angeles through rose-tinted glasses, I’m naturally a night owl, so I thought creating art with a night-time perspective would allow viewers to see the city through my eyes and have that extra element of peacefulness you get once the sun starts to set”.

Not only is George Townley creating artwork of what an outsider would expect Los Angeles and its famous landmarks to look like as the sun begins to set over the horizon, but he’s also creating these incredible pieces of art at night when he feels his creative juices tend to flow best.

“As someone who loves being up late at night when the rest of the world appears to be sleeping, I love diving into my work, which has led to an extensive collection of thoughtful, colorful prints celebrating some of these hot spots throughout the city”, shared the London- based artist.

George is looking forward to his latest art show at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, opening on April 7th, 2023 from 7-10PM. During the event, guests can browse through his exhibit of limited edition prints while enjoying good food, listening to music, and socializing with like-minded people who are just as passionate about art. The artist will be in attendance at the show.
