‘Cambridge Fantastic’ is a series of original watercolour paintings created by local artist – Radek Walachnia. The series is showing Cambridge and surrounding areas in a new light, full of humor and correct architecturally. Some call those pictures ‘whimsical’. The Artist is trying to convey an idea of the city free of pollution and traffic jams, where people can use all the vertical space to walk, cycle, use rowboats gliding through clouds, air-punt and in general enjoy their lives literally on all available levels.
I’m really happy I have an opportunity to share my vision with you and I hope you’ll enjoy this semi-fantastical vision as much as enjoyed creating it.
If you look hard enough you may find some famous characters hidden within my art. There are some Monty Python iconic characters there, Sir Isaac Newton accompanied by Charles Darwin and late Stephen Hawking, or Floyds performing on (or above) the streets of Cambridge.
