The interpretations of cityscape art are as diverse as the location used for the subject matter. Flat or three-dimensional, colored or monochrome, surreal or realistic, all cityscape art has a strong sense of design that gives it an unique flavor when compared with traditional landscapes and contemporary urban art.
Traditional and contemporary artists have pursued the documentation of architecture and human interactions in their work through cityscape art. Vincent Van Gogh, Didier Lourenco, Alexander Moore, and many other famous artists both new and old, have pursued this art form, creating a stunning atmosphere and mood on the canvas that reveals more about the artist than the city they depict.
Although the option of depicting people is the artist's choice in this type of art, few other categories of art are able to inspire the type, or variety, of emotions contained in this art form.
