Description:

Zorian Artworks displays a collection of fine detailed landscape paintings of atmospheric subjects in bold vivid colours. Artist Zorian Matthews can be found here in his studio most days working on his latest piece and is available to talk to about any of his work as well as offering free advice on your own paintings and art projects.Located in the renowned Brighton Artists Quarter, Zorian Artworks is directly on the seafront promenade, contributing to the extensive art scene in the city. Opening out onto the beach next to Brighton pier it is a great to stop and just enjoy the art or purchase a piece that would look great in your home.The gallery is open to the public all year round, most days between 11.00am till 6.00pm.The gallery is in a converted Victorian fisherman's shop, built in the old brick arches lining the beach front and situated in the historic old town area of Brighton. These shops were formally used to mend nets and store boats etc and still retain their old character which compliments the art they currently house.

Zorian Artworks is located on Brighton seafront and is a great place to spend an hour. The work is diverse and will appeal to many peoples taste. The artist pays great attention to detail. There's a range of ceramics, glass and sculptures too. You can also see the artist at work in the studio. Definitely worth a visit!😍

Gorgeous gallery, wonderful paintings, friendly artist. Bought 'Duck and Roll' as a pressie for a friend and she absolutely loved it. She had read the book about the global ducks. A must see ~ and must buy!

Situated perfectly under the arches just in front of the beach, Zorian's Artworks is a great place to visit. The artist, Zorian Matthews, is usually there, working in the little studio at the back of the shop. He is friendly and helpful and not at all pushy, as some others can be. His art is very special, being so colourful... More

The pictures are really distinctive and the smaller pieces are actually surprisingly affordable. The artist is also a very friendly guy :)

Returning to Brighton almost 6 years since the last time, I was delighted to find Zorian artworks still going strong. There were several new duck pictures ( Make sure you ask him to tell you about his inspiration for these fun paintings) and a range of landscapes. His limited edition prints are reasonably priced and make a great souvenir of... More

We stopped in after spending some time on the beach. Ask Zorian to explain the idea of the rubber ducks... a very creative idea

The use of light in some of these paintings is outstanding and the sunset/sunrise ones are breathtaking. Highly recommended

Zorian has impressive imagination & vision in all his artwork - I wanted to bring it all home! In the end I settled for his signature ducks!
