Trip to New York

One World Observatory,NYC

One World Observatory was opened just May 29 and I had a chance to visit it. It has 102nd floor, but the main public observation area is on the 100th floor. The Observatory tower uses multi-media videos illustrate 500 years of New York history while visitors climb to the top floors of the tower.

The view from the tower is magnificent, I did a lot of photos and I hoping to paint one day the series of the paintings from this view.

Also I visited Metropolitan Museum of Art, it has a spatial exhibition by Vincent Van Gogh and I was enjoying to see my favorite old masters paintings as well. I spent a lot of time in one of my the most favorite Museum of Modern Art. I also walked a lot in Manhattan, Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park, and using subway on my way to the hotel. It’s time for me to continue to paint more paintings about New York City.

A lot of my paintings was influenced by Van Gogh. I like his expressive brushstrokes, using of color, composition. You can see his influence through the history of art, from the Fauves  
and German Expressionists, Abstract Expressionists and to very contemporary artists. This is just one of his quotes “real painters do not paint things as they are… they paint them as themselves feel them to be”

I’m very interested to continue to do some collage work and in particular the abstract collage. I became interested in the techniques and it reminds me of the cubism movement, which always gives me some inspiration and enjoyment. .

I’m very pleased to announce, that my painting “Beautiful Roofs ” won Second Prize Award ($500) for best painting in CFS Annual Juried Exhibition.

Juror’s comments:

“The support of the Z-shaped composition is classical in its power. That structure has allowed the artist to distribute brilliant colour within the picture plane”
