Description: Zorian Artworks displays a collection of fine detailed landscape paintings...
Zorian Artworks displays a collection of fine detailed landscape paintings of atmospheric subjects in bold vivid colours. Artist Zorian Matthews can be found here in his studio most days working on his latest piece and is available to talk to about any of his work as well as offering free advice on your own paintings and art projects.Located in the renowned Brighton Artists Quarter, Zorian Artworks is directly on the seafront promenade, contributing to the extensive art scene in the city. Opening out onto the beach next to Brighton pier it is a great to stop and just enjoy the art or purchase a piece that would look great in your home.The gallery is open to the public all year round, most days between 11.00am till 6.00pm.The gallery is in a converted Victorian fisherman's shop, built in the old brick arches lining the beach front and situated in the historic old town area of Brighton. These shops were formally used to mend nets and store boats etc and still retain their old character which compliments the art they currently house.

Amazing paintings

Such a friendly and talented guy. Was interesting to learn why he got the Armenian name. His paintings are so realistic, yet dreamy and colourful. Well worth the visit.

I have been visiting Zorian's studio for I think over 10 years now. His artwork is mesmerising , dramatic and uplifting. I love the use of rich deep colour which gives the work a positively charged vibrant energy. I suffer badly with bipolar disorder and often find myself in dark places. I find it very important to surround myself as... More

Zorian's paintings and prints are vibrant and full of colour. He is well known for his paintings of the rubber ducks that escaped from a cargo container and then where found across the globe. He does so much more than paintings of ducks. Many of his paintings capture the buzz of Brighton. It is worth going to the seafront and... More

Nice collection for people who like blues, greens, and rubber ducks. Primarily acrylic works with great attention to detail.

Lovely guy. Really like his use of strong bright colour & subject matter. Captures the brilliant light of the Sussex coast.

I first became aware of this art studio when my niece raved about Zorian's artwork to me and fell in love with one of his paintings (which she subsequently got for Christmas). She consequently started to paint herself. A true testimony to the message Zorian can convey through his art. This prompted me to visit to see his work for... More

Zorian's paintings are both unique and inspirational. For all who have an appreciation of art will not be disappointed, his gallery/shop is well worth a visit.

Can't believe this work is done by hand. His work is amazing, it has to be seen and he shares my love of ducks.
