Artist Nick Savides paints the corner of East 12th Street and Avenue A in the East Village. "Eduardo Kobra's Run DMC mural has dominated the scene since 2018," says Nick. The gray afternoon in early spring matches perfectly with the black and white image in the mural. Two white cars in the street link the gigantic picture to its surroundings. Nick uses the original reference photograph, interpreting the painting with changes, big and small.

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.”
