I've always been fascinated by the power of mountains and the energy they emit. Stretching into the sky, the peaks and valleys of a mountain range change into a multitude of colors with the passing of clouds and the path of the sun. In this painting, I explore the variety of surfaces and colors of a mountain glowing in the sun. Its hidden energy bursts across the lower edge of the canvas in brilliant contrasting hues, which I created by pouring and manipulating the paint with my fingers. The result is a raised and glossy texture. 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.
