NYC Brooklyn Bridge Original Painting

from 65.00

Brooklyn Bridge

 

This painting is based on a photo I took of a family trip to New York City, when out of town relatives came to visit. While the Brooklyn Bridge was never in a neighborhood I frequented in my college and early career days in NYC, I did find myself driving on it, during the rare occasions I drove to the city. Even so, the Brooklyn Bridge is iconic. And everyone should walk across it at least once given the chance.

About the NYC Pop Art series

NYC is a unique place. It’s been a place of school, work and play over the years that I have lived just outside this city. At times there have been equal parts intrigue and frustration. I have a host of memories spanning the mundane of walking city blocks to get to a job, circling for lengthy time periods on unfortunate occasions looking for parking, and magical moments of taking in the Christmas festivities of Rockefeller Center. 


Aside from the lights and action of Times Square, the city has a pretty drab color palette. Grey, brown, black, tan… it often does not match the energy the city actually gives off. So I decided to create a Pop Art series of NYC scenes (mostly taken from snapshots over the years) that would depict the city opposite of what you would actually see visually. I replaced the muted colors for a much more vibrant ones. I created buildings and architecture in loose lines as opposed to the precise, exacting lines that actually exist. It’s an alternate reality NYC captured with mood and energy.
