Inspired by New York City’s skyline, EDIFICE is an abstract interpretation of the city’s incredible scapes. When the pandemic first hit, NYC streets became a ghost town. Jeffrey, a motorcycle enthusiast, took to the empty streets to reflect. At a red light on the Westside highway, he was overwhelmed by how much the notable skyline had changed. Jeffrey was on a path to creating a collection of abstract masterpieces inspired by the city’s skyline. EDIFICE has become arguably his most recognizable work. The edition on display in the
Avenue Gallery here at Park Hyatt New York highlights the artist’s use of metallics and other colors in a black and white abstract expression of NYC in the fall. In the words of the artist, “EDIFICE aims to capture that red light moment when you gaze up towards the horizon to engage with this beautiful city we all love”.
This collection features original pieces by emerging artist and Park Hyatt New York colleague, Jeffrey Okyere-Agyei.
The exhibition will be on view at Park Hyatt New York’s ground-level Avenue Gallery through November 30, 2021
