NYC Flatiron Original Painting

Flatiron

 

Back on the early 90’s I found myself walking past the Flatiron building almost daily as I attended the School of Visual Arts. Back then, there wasn’t a pedestrian sitting area (and no shake shack in Madison Square park!) Even to this day, whenever I walk down 23rd street, I’m flooded with memories of running from class to class, schlepping around my portfolio of art and a way-to-heavy backpack. Those were days filled with promise. Wonder. Hard work. And eyes fixed on the horizon. It’s fitting to have an architectural symbol in the Flatiron building that’s easy to spot on the horizon.

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.
