Painting Inspiration

This original coffee watercolor painting was inspired by a delicious afternoon coffee in Seville, Spain, in the barrio of Heliópolis! Heliópolis is a neighborhood on the outskirts of Sevilla, where I lived as a college student for a semester in 2004, close to the Real Betis soccer stadium.

The coffee mug says “El Café de Andalucía”.

The artwork itself, on archival watercolor paper, measures 9″ x 12″.

Custom Framed Brooklyn Wedding Art

Spread Love It’s the Brooklyn (Vyas) Way

One of my more popular art prints has been a painting that I did of the famous photo of the Notorious BIG wearing a crown, with the words “Spread Love It’s the Brooklyn Way“. Recently I was contacted by an engaged couple in New York City that is going to be getting married in Brooklyn, about purchasing this print but replacing “Brooklyn” with their last name, “Vyas”. They’re going to hang the artwork at their reception and then afterwards in their home.

The art print is on 13″ x 19″ archival luster paper, which I custom framed with a gallery-style gold metal frame with a white mat and anti-reflective glass:

Malgudi Days Murals

Just a few weeks ago, I completed two mural paintings at the new Malgudi Veg restaurant in Ashburn, VA! Malgudi Veg is an Indian vegetarian restaurant, that has absolutely delicious food, and at affordable prices!

The murals are based on illustrations from the famous 1980’s Indian television series Malgudi Days, by R.K. Narayan. The owner of Malgudi Veg provided me with numerous photos of illustrations from the TV show, which we put together to form scenes for the murals, each of which measures approximately 18 feet long.

Sketching out the Murals

Each mural was first sketched out with a few simple tools – a pencil, straight edge ruler, calculator, eraser, and ladder. In these pictures, I’m actually going over my initial pencil lines with black paint markers.

Painted Murals

After drawing all of the black lines with a paint marker, I then used acrylic paint to fill in the rest with brushwork.

Here are photos of the finished murals:

Kids Dinosaur Art

Painting of a Stegosaurus Driving a Red Sports Car

Taking artistic inspiration from my 4 year old son, I painted a stegosaurus driving a car a few days ago, for him to hang up in his and his brother’s bedroom:

Dinosaur Kids Art Print – Stegosaurus Driving Sports Car

While my son originally had thought of a T-Rex driving a car, I asked him what he thought of the idea of a stegosaurus instead (thinking that the spikes might look cool). He agreed with this idea, and that was that! The Steg Mobile was created!

Art prints of this stegosaurus kids art are available here.
