Chelsea, once known as the meat packing district on the west side, has become a popular capital for the art scene in New York. Many galleries have moved onto the blocks from 20th to 28th street between 10th and 11th avenues. Of course you don’t have to be a buyer or an artist to visit these galleries.
I came across Axelle, a fine art gallery on 25th street. They’re having an exhibition by one of my favorite painters, Michel Delacroix. He’s a French contemporary art painter from Paris. His subjects for his paintings are usually scenes from Paris or France. They’re very beautiful and you can just stand in front of his works and admire them. Of course there are many other works besides his. If you’d like some artistic stimulation it’s definitely worth the visit.

It’s been months since the last time I posted. A lot of things happen during the past few months. I just started working for Disney Interactive Media Group as a Lead Designer. On top of that, I was invited to participated in “100 Artist Exhibition” in Brooklyn. My illustration has been accepted into Ouchi Gallery and I was busy trying to get my illustration printed at CanvasPop.com.
“100 Artist Exhibition” is the first huge group exhibition of the new year at Ouchi Gallery. The theme of this exhibition is a collaboration of 100 artists from Japan and NY, both pro and amateur, and to support them to take a step towards expanding their artist activity globally. This exhibition had already ended, however I did took some photos from the reception night. As you can see my photos are not the best quality, but it gives you a glance of all the beautiful works at the show. If you like arts, feel free to check out Ouchi Gallery for their upcoming shows.
