In the style of realism, artist Nick Savides displays an urban cityscape on the corner of Lafayette Street and East Houston Street in NoHo. Big billboards dominate the scene in different aspects of the composition. The shadow cast by the building on the left divides the foreground and the background. "The space is complex with the glass wall both see-through and reflective," describes Nick. He builds the background with simplicity and depth where the viewer can follow the perspective lines all the way to 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.”
