Artist Nick Savides paints a captivating piece inspired by a restaurant entrance on Broome Street in Soho, New York. "I was interested in its intense red color and all the layers of rectangles inside other rectangles," explains Nick. "There is a contrast between the clean shapes of the red doors and the rough shapes of the brickwork above. Almost all of the composition is in horizontals and verticals, but the fire escape casts diagonal shadows below, while the water hose, figure, draining soap foam, and graffiti on the payphone provide some organic shapes."

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.”
