Manhattan showing the Empire State Building and the Freedom tower build over the ground zero.
The most preeminent building in the heart of the island with 1,454 feet tall above Midtown Manhattan (from base to antenna), the Empire State Building is New York City's most recognizable and celebrated attraction.
Millions of visitors from all over the world marvel at the spectacular views from its 86th Floor and 102nd Floor Observatories.
- The Empire State Building has been "home" to some of the most famous movies, including King Kong, An Affair to Remember, Sleepless in Seattle, Elf, Oblivion and Anchoring in Seattle.
- Visitors reach the 86th Floor Observatory by elevator in less than one minute.
- On the clearest of days, visibility from the Observatories is 80 miles, with five states in view - New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Massachusetts.
- Hundreds of couples have been officially married at the Empire State Building as part of ESB's annual Valentine's Weddings contest. The first Empire State Building Valentine's Day Weddings event was held in 1994.

My Artist Statement
I want to be able to accomplish art, art that is good and enjoyable to the eyes and mind of the viewers. Strong, bold and at the same time engaging, where my passion for my work is seen.
I will express the day-by-day cross-cultural nuances, as well the fragments, scenes and quotidian frames that give meaning to the cultures I partake in.
The various elements of color, together with lines, even segments of colors and different textures, serve to accentuate and enhance the meaning and significance of what has been created.
I use oils and acrylics as my primary medium and speak through the different lines, strokes, even the thickness of paint I use to evoke the environment, the scene, the moment, and the complexity and contrast. Being a foreigner in South Africa gives me the advantage to paint Cape Town or South Africa through my experiences and views.
In case you need more details about the paintings in specific please do not hesitate to contact me again.
My work is at the Art Studio where I work with a different range of professionals.
I have for about two times consecutive rented paint to the representative of the Ammazon.com office in Cape Town.
