More than fifty artists participated in the presentation and party held by Dacia Gallery entitled “The Art Show on Broadway” on Saturday. The show was in the heart of a bustling SoHo, right on the main drag, Broadway and Houston, from 3PM to 3AM. A fair mix of both established and young blood were featured at the multi-level space, as well as a bar and DJs all night.

Two of the many established artist caught our eye, and we talked with them about how New York City has shaped their work.

Pasquale Cuppari’s works, which remind us of a modern day Jackson Pollack, are certainly inspired by the city. The artist himself confessed to us, “The energy I feel when I hit the streets of the city is just amazing. I love the energy, the people, what’s happening in the art. I live in New Jersey but I’m here almost every week and I suck in all the energy and I put it into my work. As you, my work is very vibrant, very positive and energetic.”

In addition we snagged a few words with another locally influenced artist, Wayne Charles Roth, who says “My favorite thing about downtown New York is the people and the energy. Certainly its influenced my work and the style of my work— the color, the energy and the power, vitality. My work is a total reflection of what goes on in New York.”
