New York's dynamic 42nd Street and Grand Central Terminal are featured in this contemporary urban landscape. The surge of energy created by a speeding cab passing cars and buses fills the canvas. The striking yellow color of the taxi makes a dramatic statement against the grey tones of the city. I created this painting with multiple layers of oil paints which I then sculpted with an artist's knife.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes read to hang.

Getting to Know Piero

Piero Manrique paints artworks with a distinct luminescence and bright color palette. He finds inspiration in change, evolution, and discovery. “My art is like nature, it never repeats, it keeps changing and evolving.” In his current series, Piero works mainly with his fingers and special pouring techniques. “The beauty of many of these paintings is how they keep changing as they dry.” He currently lives in Mamaroneck, New York. Piero always tells his clients to feel the painting and let it tell the story.
