Matthew Grabelsky’s ‘Underground‘ looks fantastic! His realistic oil portraits of NYC subway riders reading magazines are amazing with a twist… all males are animals! If only they had prints of some of these paintings, the whole show is too striking to pick from.
“These creatures in my paintings serve to inject an element of surrealism into one of the most common experiences of life and New York (e.g., public transportation). The characters are symbolic of the kinds of thoughts that lie under the surface of people’s minds, and they reveal that the most extraordinary can exist in the most ordinary of everyday settings.”, tells Matthew Grabelsky.
