I am fascinated with exploring ways to express movement in painting. In this work, it is lunchtime in NYC and crowds of workers walk the streets looking for the right place to eat in a short amount of time. The energy of the streets accelerates, forming a symphony of streaking colors across the canvas. I created this painting with layers of oil paints. It is highly textured and the painting continues around all four sides of the gallery wrapped canvas. It comes ready 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.
