Colour Theory – New York Highline 2018
Acrylic on Canvas


The colours of New York are a visual overload for any artist. The vibrancy of neon lights in Times Square, the window displays of stores, the fashion and eccentric personalities – all contribute to the development of this concept and new colour palette. The shapes of buildings, offices, shops, city structures and utilities, as well as the iconic sights of NYC are broken down into their most basic shapes and drawn onto canvas as an abstract image of this great city. Then comes the colour.
