"This is a view of the underside of Little Island, an artificial park designed by Thomas Heatherwick off the West Side of Manhattan," shares artist Nick Savides. "I was particularly interested in the light and shade, the neutral tones and subtle blues, oranges, and greens in the water, and the tulips, which look like high heels from this angle." The park sits over the Hudson River on top of 132 uniquely-shaped concrete columns. The view is looking west, with the setting sun behind the structure and Jersey City on the horizon.

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.”
