Inspired by an engaging wide-angle perspective, sunset lighting on the pedestrians, and the textured backdrop of the Santa Monica Pier, I created this expressive figure painting in my unique Pixel Impressionist style. It is reminiscent of artists like Chuck Close and the Futurists. The piece was made with archival materials to last for generations and is varnished for added protection. The edges of the gallery wrapped canvas are finished in white and the work comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Warren

Warren Keating''s paintings start with documentation. He captures subjects on video from birds-eye views, digitizes the film on his computer and, finally, paints them on canvas in an active style he describes as Pixel Impressionism. He merges artistic elements of the 20th Century with 21st Century technology. Warren credits Futurism as well as Richard Diebenkorn and Willem de Kooning as influences in his paintings. Fun fact: Warren’s inspiration for this series came from a vacation to Paris where he photographed passersby from his hotel balcony in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
