DARRYL AT BAR
Darry Westly (b. 1989) graduated from Pratt Institute as a sculpture major and holds a BFA from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and the Arts.
Westly uses the streets, walls and architecture of Beirut as his inspiration for a new series of interior/exterior ‘landscapes’. Color, voids, shadows and light merge to create a perspective to the past, present and future of the city. The revealed neatness in his paintings link to Westly’s former eye-catching compositions of make feel ‘happy’ junk and his enquiry into our socially coded lifestyles.

The revealed neatness in his paintings link to Westly’s former photo-realistic works, eye-catching compositions of ‘make feel happy’ junk and his enquiry in our socially coded lifestyles.
