New York City artist Richard Estes is well-known for his photorealistic paintings over the past 5 decades, many of which are of New York City subjects and angles.
His process begins by taking a photograph of something that catches his eye – sometimes, he might also appear in the shot. He then reproduces these images with oils onto canvas, documenting the city around him with his art.
