From the top, this tree looks small and delicate. But look from underneath and you can see its powerful roots expanding through the channels of the land. This hidden energy gives life to all. It is the invisible force that sustains us. I applied bold colors with advanced pouring techniques to express the energy of the tree, and many sections of the painting are thickly textured. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes semi-gloss varnished and 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.
