“My love of art started on my father’s lap when I was a kid thirty plus years ago. Private lessons and university later I was burned out. Four years ago I took it up again. I’ll paint anything that strikes me but I love rich color, contrast, and thick paint. ”

The artist discovered The Metropolitan on Instagram (TheMetDet). After following us for months he inquired about painting one of our photographs by Anthony Brancaleone. The composite image seen here contains the original photograph, along with various stages of the artist’s paiRyan Dalgliesh nting. The main image features the painting of a building in Detroit hanging above a fireplace.

“I’ll keep stalking your photos,” says Dalgliesh. “There are several others that I really love.”
