As our society wonders about the future, my imagination gets inspired. I see a future where the earth is just one of many places in the galaxy we might visit, and where a spacecraft will regularly take us on journeys to other planets. As an artist, my mind is continually creating images of how this future world will look. In this painting, I depicted the globe of the earth as occupying a small space, while the sky is an endless vista. This acrylic painting is very detailed with soft blending techniques. The piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It 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.
