As the producer of a figurative arts magazine (thegreatnude.tv), I regularly attend and record videos of some of the events I go to. Mainly to offer tutorial tips. In the case of this painting however, I wanted to create an "Impressionist" styled work that captured the VIBE of one of my favorite events from the old days in Chelsea, NYC when we first started producing videos for the magazine.
Jeffrey Wiener was born in Miami, Florida in 1961, and graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Arts in 1983. He has exhibited his surrealistic drawings and paintings in galleries from Miami to the East Village of New York City. He was heavily influenced by the painters of the Renaissance, and 20th Century artists such as Thomas Hart Benton, Paul Cadmus, and especially MC Escher, who's print-making created a deep and lasting impression on the young artist with regard to print-making techniques. When the World Wide Web was unveiled, Jeffrey was one of the first galleries online, where he showcased the artworks he was exhibiting in the early 1990's in SOHO's art galleries. Today, Jeffrey Wiener is the publisher of TheGreatNude.tv, a web/video magazine for the Figurative Arts, with articles and videos that feature artists who are dedicated to using the nude in their art. He continues to experiment with digital art-making tools, and he exhibits his growing collection of iPad drawings regularly. Website: jeffreywiener.gallery
