Piece description from the artist
New York has always inspired me with its architecture and historical buildings juxtaposed with modern ones. The beauty of the NYC architecture is awe-inspiring. When I walk around the city I get lost in imagining the early history of this city. I wonder about the kind of lives people had in those days. The Flatiron Building is an iconic representation of NYC and the way it continues to be impacted by talent and wealth. The Flatiron Building has a presence that borders on fantasy and could easily have been invented in a novel or a film set. In my artworks about it, I hope to highlight its strength, history, surreal bent yet real majesty, and uniqueness that is best about NYC architecture.
