Silicon Valley Artist-in-Residence David Newman’s Solo Exhibition Brings Intimate Portraits of Innovators to New Work City in NYC

Digital Portrait Exhibition Curated Via Twitter Crowdsourcing

New York, NY - November 8, 2011 - New Work City, the high tech community coworking center in Manhattan, is now presenting David Newman’s second solo show of iPad Portraits of Innovators.

Newman paints his portraits from life at tech events at New Work City and in Silicon Valley as his subjects focus on their work. Unlike other digital artworks, Newman’s portraits are not derived from photos, scanned, or generated by apps simulating traditional methods.

Selected from more than one hundred portraits painted by Newman over the last year and a half, curation of this exhibition was crowdsourced via Twitter by New Work City co-founder Tony Bacigalupo. Responding to his tweet, NWC community members selected works to appear in the show.
