This is the Waverly Diner, at the corner of Waverly Place and 6th Avenue in New York. The warmth of the sunset lights the scene, combined with the neon, subway-billboard, and subway-globe lights. People walk along 6th Avenue, one person walks a dog. A woman in the foreground texts on her phone, and men are walking up and down the subway steps. The Empire State Building is visible in the background.

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.”
