Amaurys is a creative entrepreneur based in The Bronx. I met him through my friend Diego (who I also painted) at Amaurys’s shop, The Bronx Native. This was my first real experience in The BX and I just loved the vibe. I always try to pick dynamic individuals as my subjects for painting. It enriches the whole process. I went for a rough, painterly approach for the painting to emphasize texture. It’s tempting to blend everything like I usually do but this method is fun too. Art created using Procreate for iPad Pro.
