Early Morning in Manhattan, 2014, oil on canvas, 84x55in.

As if viewing cityscapes from the vantage point of a bird swooping through the sky or from the window of a speeding car, Italian artist Valerio D’Ospina (previously) sets the world in motion through quick and expressive brushstrokes. The artist imbues the streets of Italy, New York, and Paris with a bold sense of energy that can appear both exciting or foreboding depending on your perspective. D’Ospina also finds beauty in industrial transportation, specifically oil tankers and old locomotives that lumber into rail yards or sit docked in harbors with a captivating sense of dignity.

D’Ospina trained in Florence and Paris before moving to Philadelphia. You can see more of his work through Barbara Frigerio Contemporary Art and Rarity Gallery. He also had a recent solo show titled Transient Glance at Mike Wright Gallery in Denver. (via Design Milk)
