Artist, collector and all-around cool guy Borbay (Jason T. Borbet to the uninitiated) is now writing for Forbes about the business of collecting art in the real world,  and he used my work at the Magnises Townhouse as an example of finding exciting, quality original pieces outside of the gallery setting.

“DINING BY DESIGN brings together internationally celebrated designers and local talent to create dining installations that awe, inspire, and delight.

Marc Blackwell has created a stunning display for the show, including my original American Maiko oil painting and a set of Oxidized Bull paintings along with works by other great artists including Jeremy Penn. The iconic Phillips Collection seatbelt dining chairs (as seen in The Hunger Games)  and other fine design details, for which Blackwell is known, round out the beautiful space.

 Paint, gold, copper and silver leaf as well as vintage crushed glass and the chemical aging processes of oxidation are used to create unique works that are inspired by the experiences of the millions of individuals who have used the subway to travel the boroughs of New York City.  Old and young, shiny and tattered all share the same environment and never know what they will come across during their next ride on the subway train in NYC.

Throughout my artistic career I have been commissioned to create paintings and sculptures of  families, emperors, landscapes, beloved pets, bull fights and just about everything in-between.  I deeply enjoy bringing the ideas of another person to life in my distinct artistic style.

Learn more about the process of commissioning an original here, or feel free to contact me with any questions or to discuss ideas.

Below are process videos of recently commissioned pieces.  Enjoy!
