PRESS RELEASE
The City Reliquary is pleased to present, New York City Above and Below: Works by Plein Air Artist Enrico Miguel Thomas, an exhibition of original works. New York City Above and Below: Works by Plein Air Artist Enrico Miguel Thomas, will feature Thomas’s famed subway drawings on New York City subway maps in both sharpie and watercolor.
Known to New Yorkers as, “The Subway Artist”, Thomas  can be spotted throughout New York City hard at work in his studio – our city subway platforms, cars, and stations. Since 2007, Thomas has used New York city subway maps as his canvas and sharpies as his tools to recreate subway scenes and cityscapes as perspective drawings, thus transforming his maps into magical works of art.
According to Thomas, “my work is about taking the materials at hand and making the most of them. My materials are minimal and inexpensive; sharpies, watercolor, subway maps, and poster boards, and subject me to the challenge of making something beautiful out of seemingly impossible resources.”
While most New Yorkers view the subway simply as a means of transport, and tend to put their head down and Ipod on for the ride, to Thomas the subways represent the vibrance of New York City and his drawings capture the energy and beauty of their role in city life.
Thomas’s work has been locally featured on NY1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxvnjO5x8g8) and Fox 5. (http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/good_day_ny/100126-subway-map-artist-enrico-miguel-thomas) His art has also been reviewed by amNY newspaper and the New York Times.  (http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/21/artist-uses-the-subway-as-subject-and-canvas/) He has also received international acclaim on Mesamashi TV in Japan and Italy’s, La Stampa.
