Automat -After Edward Hopper

Piece description from the artist

I have always been and always will be an artist who appreciates the artists who came before me. But not just any artist that came before but the artists that I, in my own work, resonate with those I find common ground. Hopper was always that for me. We liked the same kinds of scenes always or usually having the composition built around people. This is the Automat with Hopper painted in 1927. I love it and wanted to do my version of it. Which is basically staying true to his version but adding my own tendency to use thicker paint and more texture.

About Philip Levine

New York, NY

Ever since Philip started painting 30 years ago there was one main focus that resonated with him: the figure. He studied anatomy for artists and spent hundreds of hours learning, experimenting with color, composition, and drawing. Because he's spent well over a thousand hours painting the figure from life it's enabled him to stretch out and create more interesting canvases using the camera as a tool. Some of the themes he's painted include NYC street scenes, boxing (he boxed years ago), the Civil War, the Indian Wars and a series of paintings of imaginary scenes inside museums pulling together a variety of images to create those paintings.
