This scene is at the corner of Rivington Street and Forsyth Street on the Lower East Side in Manhattan. The painting is an interpretation of the 27 Club mural by Eduardo Kobra. The 27 Club includes popular musicians, actors and artists who died when they were 27. Here, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, and Amy Winehouse are honored. From the trees, you can see the first signs of early spring.

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.”
