Heir to Hopper

Heir to Hopper

The image above stopped me in my tracks. It immediately looked like Edward Hopper but the girl and train were so modern! With some minor research, I discovered that the artist is Englishman-turned-New-Yorker Nigel Van Wieck and he has a vast store of equally Hopper-esque paintings on his website. I find his subway series to be most poignant.

Be aware that some of his work is a little nakedy so, if that bothers you, tread carefully.
