Description 30 St Mary Axe, better known by its nickname Gherkin, is one of the most eye-catching buildings in London and it stands out prominently in the city's skyline. The Gherkin is one of several modern buildings that have been built over the years in a historic area of London. The 41 story skyscraper was built in 2004 , originally known as the Swiss Re Building.

Thomas Petrella, Chicago Member Since July 2013 Artist Statement I have always loved artistic beauty and I love to create through different art mediums.
It has only been recent that I ventured into acrylic and water color painting. I also enjoy photography and the creative aspects of photo transformation and enhancement into digital art. My expressive art form started as only a hobby, but I quickly found that I love this medium through which to create and express. It has now become totally consuming, as I am filled with ideas and a unique eagerness for which to begin my next work.
My art work has become special to me, and it is my hope that you will find it special as well.
