'30 St Mary Axe', is an original painting in gloss on canvas. The urban landscape is the inspiration for Matthew Lindop's paintings. He has a passion for architecture, buildings and structure; their overall size and design can be both awesome and humbling. It is when he is walking around cities that he is inspired to paint a specific building or view. The majority of his paintings are centred on London, this is due to his fondness for the city and it is his home.
