Artist Nick Savides offers a view of East 6th Street at First Avenue in the East Village of New York City. "There is a mural by Aida Miro of Ganesha, Hindu god of beginnings, partially obstructed by graffiti," says Nick. "While the message 'rise by lifting others' is written over that." The bright blue of the wall provides a sky-like background, with windows and fire escape appearing to float above.

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.”
