Color My City – A New Abstract Drip Painting


By trying to give my city life, I used acrylic paint mixed with a medium to drip over the rooftops of my buildings. “Color My City” was meant to convey warmth and a seasonal feel to what people know and love about city life. This artwork portrays how different seasons effect the look of the urban atmosphere and with each look comes different emotions. A colorful city is not only one that is pleasing to the eye but one that contains many people of different cultural backgrounds and this is what makes the city rich even in the most poor of places. “Color My City” means alot of different things to me and I am sure each viewer will take away their own feelings and thoughts about this painting.
