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.

We stopped in after spending some time on the beach. Ask Zorian to explain the idea of the rubber ducks... a very creative idea

Zorian has impressive imagination & vision in all his artwork - I wanted to bring it all home! In the end I settled for his signature ducks!

I spent a long time in Zorian's shop as so much of it is breathtaking! Bought a print which he printed on-the-spot at a very reasonable price. Absolutely wonderful work so definitely pop in!

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.
