White-tailed eagles with a fish as a hooded crow stands nearby, Hungary. This hooded crow may be four times smaller than a white-tailed eagle, but it didn’t stop it from demanding some of the bird of prey’s fish supper.

San Francisco-based artist Jeremy Mann lives and works in San Francisco where he executes these sublime, moody cityscapes using oil paints. To create each work he relies on a wide range of techniques including surface staining, the use of solvents to wipe away paint, and the application of broad, gritty marks with an ink brayer. The resulting paintings are dark and atmospheric, urban streets seemingly drenched in rain and mystery.
