This painting was inspired by the crashing of waves along a beach. I wanted to capture the energy of the surf as it breaks along a rocky cost. I created the painting with a unique pouring technique I call "transformation." It is a process in which layers of different paint colors interact with one another and as they dry, the paint changes in shape and texture. If you look closely, you can see very unique details created by this process.  The surface of the painting is textured and features a high-gloss finish. The painting continues around the sides of the gallery wrapped canvas and comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Piero

Piero Manrique paints artworks with a distinct luminescence and bright color palette. He finds inspiration in change, evolution, and discovery. “My art is like nature, it never repeats, it keeps changing and evolving.” In his current series, Piero works mainly with his fingers and special pouring techniques. “The beauty of many of these paintings is how they keep changing as they dry.” He currently lives in Mamaroneck, New York. Piero always tells his clients to feel the painting and let it tell the story.
