Resembling photographs that have been captured through a rain-covered window, these city oil paintings are visually striking and atmospheric. The canvases are the work of artist Cristobal Perez GarcĂ­a who draws visual inspiration from his travels across the globe.

Based in Spain, the painter creates urban art that captures iconic city scenes from places like New York, London and San Francisco. His city oil paintings boast a moody aesthetic and are part of the artist's 'Urban Landscapes' series.

While his work resembles photography at first glance, a closer look reveals the artist's intricate, oil paint strokes and illustrates a talent for detail. Overall, these portraits capture a city's mood and evoke emotion through their brushstrokes and color palette.
