A new exhibition of ink drawings by Mr Nicky Yianni whose passion for drawing was reignited after his partner asked him to draw a picture for her.
Although a daunting task for someone that had not drawn for over a decade, it rekindled his love of drawing. Since then Nicky has been sketching urban scenes and buildings across Britain, working within silhouette shapes and moulding cities into the shapes that he had created.
Nicky, an Enfield based artist then became inspired by his local architecture and began drawing local historic buildings including Forty Hall. He first drew Forty Hall about two and half years ago and since then has been drawing it from different angles discovering and capturing the finer details of the beautiful building.
Nicky’s striking yet delicate drawings are being exhibited at Forty Hall for the first time and include new artworks.
