One Vanderbilt Rising
I am a painter living and working in New York City. I make paintings of super-tall and iconic building construction projects around Manhattan, working in series that can span months or years, to capture building phases in accurate detail and vibrant color. I became fascinated with the construction of One Vanderbilt in 2017 as the structural steel was rising above street level next to Grand Central Station. This collection of 23 paintings was created over the course of three years and marks the completion of the building's exterior in Fall 2020.
