Anthony Brunelli Fine Arts welcomes artist Hisaya Taira


BINGHAMTON - Highly detailed paintings that depict a deserted New York City are drawing people from across the country to Anthony Brunelli Fine Arts.

The gallery is exhibiting the works of Japanese artist Hisaya Taira who paints in a photorealist style.

The show titled "Exploring the Urbanscape and Beyond" includes images of New York streetscapes and subway terminals depicted in the middle of the night when no one is around.

There are also earlier works of New Orleans and Mississippi.

"This is really a gift to have here in Binghamton. This is world-class art, he's internationally recognized, these paintings have sold to collectors all over the world. It's a nearly sell-out show. To have this here in Binghamton, this is really not only a treat for us, but a treat for the community," he says.
