Neighbourhood & Tricycle

“Neighbourhood & Tricycle” is one from a series of paintings – “Neighbourhood”, which I created in London in 2021.

Painting 2: “Neighbourhood & Tricycle“, Acrylic on canvas. 45 * 50 cm.


I came to London for a short visit, but my trip lengthened due to the coronavirus lockdown. I found myself spending much time in my AirBnB. Looking out through the back window, I was exposed to a new world, and I was inspired to create a series of paintings, the “Neighbourhood” [stamford Hill, London].

The changes in color that took place outside, day by day, hour by hour, captivated me. There was a schoolyard that felt as if it was trapped by the houses around it.

״Neighbourhood,” my initial acquaintance with the world outside my window (Stamford Hill). It was as if I had just met a new friend.

“Neighbourhood & Tricycle,” A child’s tricycle caught my eye. It had been left in the schoolyard, and the sky and houses around it were smiling. (Top pic.)

Painting 3: “Neighbourhood & Girl Jumping on Rope”, Acrylic & Oil crayons on canvas. 45 * 50 cm.

“Neighbourhood & Girl Jumping on Rope,” was created when I saw a young girl jumping rope in the schoolyard under a dreamy sky.

Painting 4: “Hey, who’s the new one in our Neighbourhood”, Acrylic on canvas. 45 * 50 cm.

“Hey, who’s the new one in our Neighbourhood?,” a painting I made when I saw the surprised look on the girls’ faces at the schoolyard, who looked at me, as I was looking at them.

“Snow in my Neighbourhood,” is a quick painting I did at the sight of the first snowfall in London.

Working on these paintings filled me with joy.
