Acrylic painting on canvas
#NovaY is the latest in a series of paintings called Cityscapes. Pako Campo, his author, created them as a way to express the diversity of human race.
Cities and urban landscapes are the subject matter on his art. He takes saturated and contaminated cities, places that have become anodyne and overcrowded over the years, to embellish them with vivid colors.
Color is used here as a symbol of beauty and diversity, in opposition to the functionality and consistency of today’s big cities.
The lighting is particularly remarkable on this piece of art. Take as an example the sun rising from behind of the Empire State Building, something physically impossible from this point of view. The artist means that light is coming from the South. Quite metaphoric nowadays.
#NovaY was exhibited in the Artexpo New York 2018. Currently, it is part of a private collection.
