This painting was inspired by my view from the patio of the Thunderbird Restaurant in Santa Fe. I sat watching people walk around the plaza. I rendered the movement of the figure in my signature Pixel Impressionism brushstrokes to create an active, textured surface that expresses the immediacy of the moment. It is varnished with a satin finish that protects the painting from smoke, dust and UV. This gallery-wrapped canvas has finished edges and comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Warren

Warren Keating''s paintings start with documentation. He captures subjects on video from birds-eye views, digitizes the film on his computer and, finally, paints them on canvas in an active style he describes as Pixel Impressionism. He merges artistic elements of the 20th Century with 21st Century technology. Warren credits Futurism as well as Richard Diebenkorn and Willem de Kooning as influences in his paintings. Fun fact: Warren’s inspiration for this series came from a vacation to Paris where he photographed passersby from his hotel balcony in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
