There’s no denying the spirit of Andy Warhol is very much present in New York’s artistic landscape. Every time I visit the city there’s some sort of Warholian action. This time around I got to the opening of the ‘Nice to meet you’ exhibition at Tazza Gallery (547 W 27th St, New York, NY 10001)by self-proclaimed superstar artist Marco Santaniello. Marco’s work takes pop art rules to a whole new level: it’s aggressively colorful, stuffed with pop icons’ portraits and serves as a perfect example of ‘eye candy’ art. The exhibition is small but surprisingly diverse: from the re-imagined portraits of Terry Richardson to New York’s landscapes, from David Bowie to Kate Moss.
The exhibition at Tazza Galllery runs until December 12, so you have plenty of time to get your slice of pop culture.
