Inspired by the beauty and poetry found in the everyday, I created this contemporary impressionistic figurative  painting from my aerial viewpoint of pedestrians in Paris. The rain glancing off of the umbrella created an expressive texture which complimented the movement of the figures.

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.
