Brighton Bandstand

Brighton Bandstand and Full Moon by Nicole Carman Online Art Gallery

I just finished my brand new print “Brighton Bandstand and Full Moon” with the ethereal West Pier hovering in the corner. I created this image using my original photograph, mixed media, collage and drawing. This is now available to buy as a limited edition Gicleé Print or Canvas via my online Brighton art gallery. I use the highest quality inks and sign all my artworks. You can buy it HERE as well as other original art for sale.

Potted History. The beautiful and unique bandstand is located on Brighton’s vibrant seafront. It was first opened in 1884 but was restored to its original condition and reopened in 2009. It was designed by Phillip Lockwood, a Brighton Borough Surveyor. It is considered to be one of the finest examples of a Victorian bandstand still surviving in England today.

It is also available to hire and has hosted hundreds of Brighton weddings. I’ve been lucky enough to sell many of my pictures as wedding presents.

The original design featured a bridge linking the upper promenade with the Bandstand. This was removed in the late 1970s but the ground floor is still in use as a café.

Brighton Bandstand and Full Moon is part of my series ‘Landmarks and Iconic Buildings’. Below are 2 more in the collection: Royal Pavilion Brighton and Passaglia and West Pier Murmuration.

I’m very excited to be launching a brand new set of Brighton prints available to buy now. In addition to my photography, I have begun to create my own illustrations and screen printing techniques. I really love the texture of these images and the subtle layers of colour that build up.

The first in my Brighton Art series is called ‘Big Wheel and Pier Brighton‘. Sadly the big wheel was only in Brighton for 5 years but it was a great addition to the city. In my print I have kept the Palace Pier in monochrome from my original photograph and played around with the colour orange and used some large paintbrush styles.

You can buy this print framed/unframed or as a canvas. All my works are printed with the best quality inks and signed. Please visit my online shop for full price and size details.
