Artists painting great cityscapes…Dan Bodner

Dan Bodner is a painter based in New York City who loves to paint urban scenes. As an art admirer I enjoy the way he uses lights and darks to model the people, you know if they are male or female, general but not too descriptive. The movement of the people is interesting as well. They are many times waiting to move forward at a crosswalk. The energy is captured perfectly.

In the mid 1980s Bodner got interested in painting the figure while in Amsterdam. He painted the figure in space for many years while living in Amsterdam for more than one decade. In 2005 upon returning to New York City he became excited about painting the figure in urban spaces and thus came his new style.

The artist studied at the University of Wisconsin and also the Art Students League of New York.
