Artist Nick Savides demonstrates a realistic view of Rivington and Forsyth's corner in the Lower East Side. The piece features an interpretation of the "Creative Resilience" mural by Danielle Mastrion. The woman gazes out, one eye blocked by a tree, while graffiti slowly takes over the wall. Nick paints diagonals in different aspects of the composition, from the woman's face to the shadows, clouds, the arc of the bird's back, the curb, and a tree branch.

Nick Savides

Brooklyn, New York

Nick learned to paint from his mother when he was a child, but it wasn’t until college that he decided to be a career artist. His realist images of New York City are inspired by the drama of the city–the changing light, the spontaneous magic. Nick begins his process with reference photographs from his daily life, often shooting the same scene at multiple times of the day. He brings the images back to his Brooklyn studio where he composes a scene in Photoshop, adding and subtracting elements from multiple photographs to achieve the perfect composition before beginning to paint. “As my artwork is realistic, one might be tempted to think they are copies from nature,” says the artist. “Really, they are composed–every detail is considered. It is a balance between what is seen, what is true to nature, and what can make a good painting.”
