10 Park West Artists Who Let Springtime Bloom in Their Art
Spring has sprung, and with it comes new hope and possibilities, bright colors, warm light, and a fresh lease on life! Artists have long drawn inspiration from the spring season as they put paint to canvas.
Let’s take a look at how 10 Park West artists incorporate springtime in their original creations. Some may use spring in obvious ways (blooming flowers or spring sports, for example), while other artists sneak fragments of the season into their subtle compositions.
“Spring Showers” by Slava Ilyayev
The wonderfully talented Slava Ilyayev produces a quintessential spring work of art with this gloriously bright, hand-signed serigraph in color on paper. The vibrant blooms on the trees, the people out and about enjoying longer days and warmer air, and the glow of spring shower reflections on the roadway coalesce into this absolutely stunning work depicting the best aspects of springtime.
“Atlantic Emotion” by Romero Britto
No stranger to vibrant colors, hope, and positivity, Romero Britto brings all of those qualities to “Atlantic Emotion,” a 3-dimensional serigraph that literally leaps out of the frame, like tulip buds bursting out of the ground! It embodies springtime energy with playful flowers in the right-hand corner and new love blossoming between two multicolored fish. Also, spring does happen to be the start of fishing season across much of the country – so those puckered-up cuties are sure to make eager anglers dream of time spent on the water beneath the warm sun after a long, cold winter.
“Dreaming of a Garden” by Maya Green
If we were to ask you what’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think about spring, you’d likely respond with “Flowers!” Your next response may very well involve dreams of a garden full to the brim with colorful petals and lush green foliage. Maya Green’s blooms explode off the canvas in this unique work, evoking everything beautiful and brilliant about springtime.
“Bugs Baseball Mini” by Warner Bros Studio
For a sports fan in America, few things are more magical than Spring Training baseball, with the hope that your team might gel over the course of 162 games and play deep into October, claiming a World Series trophy. In Spring, the pitchers are still fresh and the batters are still smashing the ball over the fence. In Arizona and Florida, the hot dogs are juicier, the cold beverages more delicious, and the stadiums are smaller and more intimate. This Bugs Bunny baseball sericel will transport any art collector back to their childhood memories of ballparks where the smell of fresh-cut grass and the loud crack of a bat deliver positive memories of Spring.
“Polo Panorama” by Leroy Neiman
Legendary artist Leroy Neiman knew his way around the sports world, capturing many prestigious sporting events with his keen eye throughout his career including this delightful panoramic scene straight from a polo match on a gorgeous spring day. The fancy hats, green grass, and blue skies of this beautiful 40-inch wide serigraph will bring the outside in when hung in your office or home.
“Le Golf a Cannes” by Jean-Claude Picot
As the snow melts, temperatures rise, and the sun hangs in the sky longer into the night, many people are drawn to the game that some consider “a good walk spoiled” … golf! Jean-Claude Picot’s golfing foursome seen in this giclee in color on canvas are working on their short game, as one of the players clearly lines up a chip shot from the short rough on the fringe of the green. One of his friends stands with his hand on the pin, a hopeful act in and of itself, assuming the ball will roll toward the hole. Anyone who has ever golfed will see themselves in “Le Golf a Cannes,” and would love to have this fabulous artwork in their home or office to remind them of spring, hitting the links, and spending time outside with friends.
“Hope Springs Eternal” by David (LEBO) Le Batard
Playful Park West artist LEBO delivers all the fragrant, flowery goodness of spring in this hand-signed dye sublimation on wood caldograph. There are flowers in bloom, the warm sun, flying critters looking for nectar, and beams of sky blue sky. If you have a space that needs to be brightened, the fabulous “Hope Springs Eternal” from LEBO will do the trick!
“Giverny Spring” by Marko Mavrovich
Even if you’ve never heard of or have visited Giverny, you will likely still recognize this quaint French village. This is because the great impressionist Claude Monet lived and painted his famous “Water Lilies” here on his property, which still stands and accepts visitors every day. Marko Mavrovich’s “Giverny Spring” transports you all the way to this special place without having to pass through airport security. The delicate purples and red flowers, white water lilies, and reflection of a springtime sun exude a familiar warmth that will light up any room in your home.
“Springtime Splendor” by David Najar
Ah, the cherry blossoms of spring and the rising Japanese sun! David Najar’s gorgeously tall and narrow giclee in color on paper is a powerhouse of bold, rich tones and intense seasonality. Spring is on show every day of the year when you collect this splendid Najar artwork.
“Central Park – Spring” by Peter Max
Our final work in this spring art collection comes from the one and only Peter Max, who serves up a delightfully classic NYC springtime scene. There’s no place like Central Park, and no better time than spring to visit for a picnic, a nap, a relaxing place to read a book, a carousel ride, or a pedal-boat ride on the lake. Max’s cheery serigraph will ensure that no matter the weather, it’ll always be Spring in New York City.
