Painting NYC goes back to my childhood and the TV and movies filmed in NY. So from childhood and young adult love of film and TV shows, I developed a passion for the Big Apple. Fred Astair dancing in the park, the twinkling of the lights and the TV drama The Naked City, all impacted my life. And years later, my collections would not be complete without art suites of New York City, it’s urban boroughs and the magical Central Park. –Roberto Gutierrez
New York City/Central Park Paintings
LocationNew York City.
Central Park and New York City has always been a dream of mine growing up with such films and TV shows set here. Watching Fred Astaire coming out of the Waldrof Astoria Hotel, the hustle and bustle of the streets and people rushing through their lives, all fascinated me. And, there is the music borne out of this amazing city. I loved the abstract expressionist art of the 1950's and photographs of famous Cedar Bar in NYC, where all of these artist hung out. I finally had the opportunity to capture it.Roberto Gutierrez
