About Emma Loizides
Emma Loizides is a British cityscape painter based in London. Emma creates oil paintings of energetic urban landscapes with a bright and colourful palette.
After Studying Spanish at university and spending years working in banking, Emma admired the city skyline and in 2005 started painting. She would sketch London in the early morning and soak in the atmosphere of the city, capturing the subtle magic of sunrise. Emma’s candy-coloured street scenes and idealised landscapes are about escapism, portraying a moment of calm.
Emma spent a few years living in Las Vegas and enjoyed travelling the west coast of America. Beaches, sunsets, and palm trees feature in her paintings and the quirky buildings and spacious landscape has influenced her work. Emma has a keen interest in Americana and loves painting gumball machines, juke boxes, taco trucks or fast-food menus, taking inspiration from pop art and artists Jasper Johns, Edward Hopper, and Wayne Thiebaud.
Emma’s painting “Monos” was exhibited in this year’s Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy. She has sold work globally and has collectors in the USA, Australia, Monaco, and Cyprus, and had work featured in the Hollywood Reporter. Emmacreates playful, uplifting works taking the viewer on a journey around the streets of London and faraway places including Vegas, New York, and Hollywood.
