These paintings by Mike Barr are good enough to beat any filter-infused Instagram photos.

The Australian painter is a master of creating rainy cityscapes, depicting gray atmospheres and moods of gloom. With the neon hues of nearby street lamps and shop signs powering through thick layers of haze, it becomes challenging to try to figure out which city is being depicted (it’s Melbourne). Coupled with a sense of familiarity that we’ve all experienced similar gloomy days in big cities, Barr’s paintings prey on nostalgia. Check out some of his paintings below and find more on his Facebook and website.
