Richard Taddei

Months ago I saw this painting in a shop-window in Chelsea. I thought it pretty and harmless. This morning I saw it again when I was trashing my Time Out magazines.

Richard Taddei is an artist based in NYC, and he has a website. Browsing the catalogue, I found two paintings I like quite a bit. The first for its abstract power, the second for capturing the look on the youth's face.
