As I look down a Manhattan street, a ray of light appears. A taxi cab accelerates and speeds past me - a visual representation of time moving forward. I see a mystical image where substance and flow merge into colorful abstract forms. I created this painting with layers of oil paint. It is highly textured and 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.
