Ready to Hang

I fell in love with the city of Long Beach, ever since the first time my plane landed there. I loved everything about this city, the architecture especially, and the liveliness and vibrancy of each and every street.

I recently read that the city planned to redevelop the existing city offices and replace them with an entirely new site. Having seen the municipal offices so many times, and photographed it even more, with that buildings striking brutalist architectural form, the architect in me felt drawn to create a drawing, albeit simplified, of that building, to preserve its beauty, and in a small way at least, the uniqueness of that wonderful landmark before its lost to the history books.

>>> Please Note: The drawing is matted & wrapped on its own individual backing board. It is ready to either hang as is, or to be placed into your own personal frame

Hello!.. I'm Rimi, and I'm happy that you're taking the time to browse my artworks. I was an architectural technologist, until a few years ago I found my passion in mixed media ink drawings, photography and sketching. I usually work on quite a few separate pieces at the same time, as I find that my drawings & designs develop fairly randomly, each piece changing and evolving as I look it and add to it, so that by the time it's done, it's quite different to my original vision but at the same time, it just feels right (if that makes sense!..)
