I am obsessed with all things New York. What has captivated me more than anything else about this city is its subway system. Its ability to transport more than 5 million people from all walks of life to and fro their destinations each day is nothing short of astounding. Although it has it flaws, this underground city harbors so much diversity, talent, and multiculturalism. Yet, so much of it goes unnoticed due to the fact that its inhabitants are too focused on reaching their destinations. This is why I chose to paint New York City’s subways. Something is always happening somewhere and its up to you to notice it.
