Newcastle Upon Tyne Pantone Art

Art by myself, depicting some landmarks in and around my home city of Newcastle Upon Tyne. All painstakingly created from Pantone style colour swatches. Each image is constructed as a 40×40 square grid comprising of 1600 individual swatches. Each swatch is the average colour of the particular region of the image. Looking closely and all you will see is a series of coloured square Pantone swatches; Take a few steps back and the stunning landmarks are revealed.

The Angel of the North divides the local residents. Some love it as an icon of the nort east, while others see it as an unsightly blot on the landscape. Personally I like it.

The bridges over the Tyne are iconic, stunning, pictoresque and well worth a visit. The above image is the view from the Gateshead side of the High Level bridge. You can make out the beautiful shape of the Tyne bridge as well as its bright red neighbour, the Swing Bridge.

Dominating the Newcastle skyline  is St. James Park, home to Newcastle United Football Club since it opened in 1892. It now regularly holds over 50,000 geordies after renovations between 1998 and 2000.

It’s a shame that permission cannot be gained to continue the stands around the whole stadium to create a 100,000 seated mega stadium.

Other Pantone artworks I’ve created so far: Comic, Spiderman, Starwars pantatooine.
