Elliot Appel's Art

I want the viewer to share my interest in everyday objects that are unique to ‘the city’. All too often, people may find themselves rushing from place to place without noticing the beauty, history, diversity and culture that surrounds them. They may not have an opportunity to appreciate the street performer, the antiquated storefront, the interesting window reflection-things that contribute to making urban living worthwhile and enriching.

I also strive to capture remnants of the ‘old’ city on canvas before they become fleeting memories- the city of five-story walk-ups, ornamental windows and hand-painted signs. I think it’s important to remember these things.

My art allows people to ‘slow it down’. It gives the viewer a chance to focus on some of the overlooked details that are an integral part of their daily lives; hopefully the viewer will come away with a greater appreciation for their surroundings and share my love of ‘the city’.
