As an artist I am constantly searching for relationships between nature and manmade structures. This painting captures New York City from above, bathed in light, serenity, and calmness. Through this perspective, we can appreciate how the structures in this painting communicate with the sky and the light. I enjoy curving the perspective of the horizon to enhance consciousness of the earth. A glow behind the buildings was created for atmospheric awareness. The Brooklyn Bridge is depicted as a large archetypal symbol, the carrier of energy through space and time. This acrylic painting is very detailed with soft blending techniques, and sections of abstract pouring, featuring some areas of semi gloss finish and 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.
