David Hepher's stories
a life in architectureSubscription
Although he has always painted buildings, David Hepher thinks of himself as a landscape artist. It just happens that buildings comprise most of the landscape he paints. He has a particular fondness for the better tower blocks of the 1960s, even when they are weathered with graffiti; and he singles out a group on the Wyndham Comber Estate near Camberwell Green in South London, 'built like a pile of bricks ... very chunky and squarish, a happy mix of brick and concrete'.
