San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge is a mystical monument of beauty and energy. To me, the bridge is a pathway for the energy of the city to flow out into the natural world around it. The painting's illusion of depth and perspective creates a sense of misty light, as if the bridge is floating in the water. From a young age, I have always liked bridges. I find a special meaning in the energy emitted by bridges. I was lucky to witness the magic of the Golden Gate Bridge on a trip to California last year, which inspired me to create this painting. Special paint pouring techniques were applied to the bridge path and this area is highly textured, with dramatic contrasts and vibrant colors. The painting continues around the sides of the gallery wrapped canvas and has a semi-gloss finish. It comes wired to hang.

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.
