About Doug Webb

Known for his fantastical paintings that depict transformations of cityscapes and public architectural spaces, Doug Webb has explained that the strength of his work “lies in the recognition of opposites—the humdrumness of urban living with the dream of utopia based in nature.” Webb has also said that his pictures blend “threads of satire, irony, conflict and hope,” themes apparent in works like Lost and Found (2009), where New York’s famous Times Square in shown bathed in sunlight—upon closer inspection, a door in the sky reveals itself.

American, b. 1946, Istanbul, Turkey, based in Calabasas, California
