    Description

    Street Gang

     

    “Warriors come out to playeeyay!”

    This painting reminds me of the 1979 cult classic “The Warriors” about a New York Street gang trying to get home after a botched gang summit.

    The urban jungle is a dangerous place at night. Nocturnal predators come out to hunt in packs on the mean streets and their unwary prey may not make it back to the herd. Every big city has its high crime neighborhoods that are best avoided after dark. Besides the ominous mood, I like the strong verticals and design graphics of the long shadows against the intense colors in this piece.

    Feel like I've been here before!

    Loose strokes so well placed, a huge range of values, and the illusion of light sweeping in across the tables creates a powerful effect -- that I know this room and I've been here before!
