This painting was inspired by my view from my balcony of the Hôtel Lutetia in Paris of the pedestrians walking in the rain below. Using my signature brush strokes, I rendered the motion of the couple under an umbrella. This unique oil painting inspires the viewer to rediscover the beauty and poetry in the everyday.

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.
