Homage to Hopper

Piece description from the artist

I've been a huge fan of Edward Hopper for many decades and have always found my work resonates with his. Both city boys in NYC and both painting NYC scenes among other subject matter – the figures he painted are what I loved the most. This painting was an imaginary scene of what it would look like with one of his figures moved into a scene inside a museum of his paintings. Do you recognize what Hopper painting the woman was a part of? New York Movie 1939 is the name.

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.
