Mercury’s Winged Feet, Jardín Botánico, Buenos Aires by Ignacio
Twenty-seven year old Hsin-Yao Tseng presents San Francisco in emotive strokes that revel in the city’s murkiness that is not often shown in paintings with the same subject. The darkness is given glimpses of beauty with flashes of street lights or brilliant sunsets and though I’ve only featured Tseng’s cityscapes within this post his entire body of work is mystifying as it is gorgeous:
