This gestural painting of a child holding a toddler's hand as they run down St. Germain was inspired by the view from my hotel balcony during a winter trip to Paris. I rendered the movement of the running figures with my signature Pixel Impressionist brushstrokes. I prepared the painting with archival materials to last for generations and finished it with a UV protective varnish.

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.
