"New York City Street", 1997, Gouache on canvas, 56" x 56", © Julie Castillo 2020
This painting was commissioned to be used as a commercial backdrop. I was asked to create a painting of New York buildings. That was the only perimeter I was given besides the size. It was a fun project. I created this on canvas with the moonlight being cast upon the buildings. The location was SoHo. Most of these buildings have changed or have been demolished/replaced by newer buildings. I have an affection for the architecture of the past. History speaks to me. I hope it makes you reflect on the beauty of New York.
