Tanya Leighton is pleased to present a curated feature of newly finished works by a selection of the gallery’s artists.
These new and recent works, across a variety of medium and scale, would have been the foundation of the gallery’s presentation at Art Basel this June. In light of the event’s cancellation, we are proud to be sharing our artists’ unique perspectives with you in our first online Viewing Room.
We hope that this new platform provides an authentic experience for you to encounter and enjoy the works of many of our artists.
Floratos is painting inside the belly of the beast. He’s built his own little paradise under the sidewalk. Literally under the sidewalk; in the basement of the old Hit Factory on 48th Street where he’s made himself a studio that extends right down under the street.
In the evening rush hour when everybody else is leaving work, he hears them clacking and tapping and thumping overhead... Pure energy coming down through the walls and the ceilings, pushing in from every side. He’s down there painting New York from the inside.
