Miro's "New York Frame of Mind"

Check out the show!

One of the benefits of having this blog has been the other artists I have met online who share my love of New York and often use it as their muse for their own work. Last night I had the pleasure of meeting in person Miro Sinovcic at the opening reception of his show of recent paintings in midtown Manhattan. The large scale canvases were just bursting with color and energy, with subjects such as the Times Square area and Central Park portrayed, among others. The neutral walls of the large corporate lobby space showed off the work very well. Miro's brushwork is very different from my own, with loosely painted bright daubs of color built up to create the image. Impressionistic, somewhat abstract yet very real at the same time.

If you are in the area, check out this wonderful exhibit, located at Show Walls, lobby of 1133 6th Avenue. The show is up through mid-May. For a peek at the paintings in the exhibit click here to visit Miro's blog.
