For my artistic process, nature is an unlimited source of inspiration. I created this painting in response to the abundant life energy I feel exists in trees. As a tree grows, it brings new energy to the land, stretching its roots deep below the surface and rising high into the air with its graceful branches. This painting expresses the joy of growth in nature. I produced this work with brushstrokes, pouring techniques and by applying my fingers directly on the canvas. Touching the paint directly with my hands results in a pure communication between the painting and me. I used acrylic paints to produce varied textural surfaces and high-gloss finishes. 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.
