Photorealism Paintings by Danny Heller

The first time we saw the work of Danny Heller Art, we thought we were looking at blown up photographs! We were amazed by Danny’s realistic painted renderings of iconic Mid Century Modern buildings, cars, and locations! You can view more of (and purchase) works by Danny on his website:

UPDATE from Danny Heller:

After much anticipation, I’m happy to announce my next exhibition for 2016 will open March 3rd at the George Billis Gallery’s New York City location.

Titled “Midcentury Manhattan,” this series delves deeper into my exploration of the architecture, car culture, and design aesthetic that flourished in New York City in the 1950s and 60s. At a time when the city was transitioning from WWII aftermath to Modern metropolis, a whole new vision of contemporary city life was taking shape. Brownstone buildings turned into glass skyscrapers, a simplified clean aesthetic replaced ornate details, and entire city blocks were leveled to make way for the almighty automobile. Focusing on this duality of old and new, my work captures a changing New York – the old neon signage of the neighborhood pharmacy, as well as the sleek interiors of Mies van der Rohe’s groundbreaking Seagram Building. You’ll find classic storefront windows displaying 1950’s fashion, juxtaposed with office windows of a Madison Ave skyscraper. Viewed as a whole, my series aims to take viewers to this transformative period of time – and might even remind them that many of these scenes can still be found in Manhattan today.
