DAVID NEWMAN’S THIRD ANNUAL SOLO SHOW OF PRINTS
NOW SHOWING AT NEW WORK CITY, HIGH-TECH COWORKING SPACE IN NYC
LIFTOFF: 10 Giclée prints inspired by Newman’s iPad Portraits of Innovators
New York, NY - May 6, 2013- New Work City, the community driven coworking space in Manhattan, is now showing David Newman’s third solo show of digital prints inspired by his hand-painted iPad Portraits of Innovators. The continuous show opens today. The new works, titled Liftoff #1-10, are digital collages inspired by Newman’s series of portraits of innovators painted from life. They combine hand-painted digital portraits, photos, and scanned ink-on-paper works.
Newman, a former courtroom artist who covered historic trials in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1970’s, painted his first computer graphics portrait in 1982. In 2006, he began a series of ink-on-paper portraits of Silicon Valley innovators. Since 2010, he has used the iPad as his preferred medium to paint more than 150 portraits of innovators from life.
Newman has painted traditional and digital portraits of entrepreneurs and developers at Google, Le Web and Le Camping in Paris, Microsoft, NASA, PayPal, Stanford University, Twitter, Yahoo, and other high-tech venues.
The works are on view at New Work City, on Broadway south of Canal Street, an innovative coworking space and center for independents.
