His solo show is at Mandell’s Gallery, in Elm Hill, and he even includes the exterior of the gallery itself in one of his oil paintings which presents an unusual view of the city’s historic cobblestone street.

Mr Pointon, who lives in Cheshire, visited Norwich for an art project in 2014 which saw him paint cathedrals around Europe, and he said he was delighted to return and explore more of the city with his paintbrush.

He said: “I love exploring the diversity of the architecture of Norwich, seeing the different architecture styles because it is such a historic city. “Hopefully my paintings bring a fresh perspective to Norwich. I hope they make the people of Norwich look at their own city differently.”

Mr Pointon’s show, which runs until October 28, also includes paintings of London, New York, Venice and Doha. Visit www.mandellsgallery.co.uk
