The view from the Marina Bay Sands rooftop pool has already become legendary. Now, British artist Les Conroy has translated it onto canvas, using the technique Pointillism, in which small, distinct dots of colour form the image.
“I have become more and more interested in Pointillism because I like being able to project light in varying degrees of intensity.”
says the artist about his work.
Conroy has been painting since about 1971, starting mainly with landscapes and seascapes. In recent years, he has become very interested in pointillism, making copies of Old Masters and Impressionist works.
His works are part of collections in the UK, Ireland, The Netherlands, Spain, The Peoples Republic Of Yemen, The USA, Canada and Italy. In 2010, Conroy won a world wide art competition with his portrait of Joss Stone as Anne Of Cleves in the TV series The Tudors.
