A corner view of Rivington and Ludlow in the Lower East Side of New York City. "The Serafina Restaurant is in the foreground," states artist Nick Savides. "There is graffiti on the buildings, some from the BLM protests in 2020. A senior walks into the scene with a cane. His jacket reflects the jacket worn by the man pictured in the graffiti. A young woman crosses his path, while an embracing couple looks on." The composition is dominated by reds and yellows and a prominent diagonal formed by the edge of the sidewalk.

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.”
