Paintings by Tom Sanford

September 06, 2013

We love these paintings by New York-based artist Tom Sanford. Inspired by the colorful and eccentric residents of the great city, Staford's characters range from famed rappers to Spike Lee, Steve Powers, and Mayor Bloomberg. "But I need New York City. I feed of the culture. All the amazing people who inhabit this magical place, doing fantastic things. They create an energy, or perhaps an anxiety, that nourishes me and I must be close to the source. Hopefully I am conributing that energy as well." Amen, brother. (via)
