Outstanding cityscape artist Csilla Orban will be making a personal appearance at The Artroom Galleries in Taunton on Saturday 21st May from 1pm until 3pm to open a stunning new exhibition entitled Cities of Dreams. Featuring Original Paintings and Collectable Limited Editions by some of the UKs finest contemporary artists, the gallery will be hosting a Champagne reception in Csillas honour, and has issued an open invitation to local art lovers to come and meet this superstar of the art world.

The cityscapes of Csilla occupy a unique position on the current art market. Although they depict specific and often recognisable locations, their particular brilliance lies in the creation of atmosphere rather than the accuracy of detail. By merging colours and blurring the reflected light in the rain-slicked streets, Csilla conveys the fast-moving essence of her chosen subject in her own distinctive way.

After spending much of her twenties travelling around Europe she finally settled in the UK. Fascinated by these exciting foreign cultures, Csilla was inspired to paint what she saw. Csilla's artistic creed is to paint 'faithfully and with humanity'. Her favourite place and the one which first galvanized her imagination was Paris, and she was entranced by its intimate cafes, grand boulevards and bohemian culture. She has been a member and a co-secretary of the Parisian Independent Salon's Hungarian group since 1996, where she has helped several talented young artists to establish their reputation on the international art scene.

Csillas work will be showcased in the gallery alongside artwork from celebrated cityscape artists including Henderson Cisz, (officially named as Artist of the Year), Darren Baker, (commissioned to paint this years official portrait of the Queen, unveiled in June), and the nations favourite artist Rolf Harris, who subject matter is as eclectic as his talents! Each artists arresting interpretations breathe life into the elegant boulevards of Paris, the imposing facades of London, and the breathtaking crowds of New York City.

The Artroom Galleries, conveniently located on Corporation Street in the heart of Taunton, is one of the UKs most stylish and innovative art venues - this cutting-edge art venue offers art lovers a place in which to relax and enjoy viewing an exceptional range of Original Paintings, collectable Limited Editions and Sculptures.

Gallery owner Dave Hughes said We are delighted to welcome Csilla to the gallery and are proud that she has accepted our invitation to visit Taunton and launch our exciting new exhibition at The Artroom Galleries. I hope our friends in the area will all be coming along to meet her and to enjoy this unique occasion.
