About the Artist - Hartwig Braun
Hartwig Braun, the artist behind the Arty Globe brand, is a Fine-Arts Artist specialising in design-led illustrative works. He uses his architectural background and discoveries as a passionate urban flaneur as well as love for buildings, geography and the natural world to create detailed and engaging cityscapes and illustrated maps.
“I have always had a passion for the Metropolis. As an architect, I combine my knowledge of structures to unravel the essence of the city together with artistic freedom to create these stylistic cityscapes and cultural icons from around the globe” (H.B.)

Our Gallery & Shop at Greenwich Market
Arty Globe launched at Greenwich Market London in 2008, starting life in the form of a weekend market stall. In April 2009 the business expanded to a retail unit in the same location and now resides in a lovely two story retail unit at 15 Greenwich Market.
The ethos behind the business and brand is to make Hartwig’s unique & playful artwork accessible to a wider audience in the form of art for the wall, jigsaw puzzles, homeware, accessories, stationery, quality gifts and other products that are largely UK produced, with all designs hand-drawn and illustrated by Hartwig in his playful yet very accurate signature style.
