Details of this

Accomplished Manchester architect turned artist Joe Gellert is offering one lucky winner the chance to commission a bespoke painting.

For most of his life Joe Gellert worked as an architect in private practice, drawing architectural designs for his clients to help them achieve their dream home. On retiring in 2007, Joe decided to settle down and put his artistic energy into a different endeavour: painting. Working from his own studio in his Whitefield home, Joe has produced some truly stunning pieces.

Now, Joe works in a variety of styles and mediums, from traditional watercolour to modern acrylics and photorealistic paintings.

While much of Joe’s work focuses on buildings and scenery – understandable given his previous line of work – he’s also branched out into painting life like portraits. Joe found more time to paint during lockdown and is still going strong now that remaining inside isn’t necessary.

Each painting takes around 200 hours to complete, minimum, and the effort can certainly be seen. Joe’s paintings have been sold as far afield as France, Spain, and the USA, often painted in less than sunny weather but featuring a feel-good blue sky.
