Paint the Town with Joy!

Location: Mercato 9115 Strada Place, #5155

We Neapolitans love our town and are proud that it continues to be recognized as the happiest city in America. Naples is growing and becoming more beautiful and sophisticated every year.

It is the perfect time for a biographer to come along, who depicts Naples’s life in the same joyful manner and happy perspective as all the citizens of Naples.

And this biographer has recently arrived – her name is Joy Stanley, and she is an artist. Many people come to the gallery and admire the places of Naples that they love, painted in “whim-storical” manner, as Joy calls it – history meets whimsy.

Urban Flair exhibit of colorful collage-like depictions of the most beautiful cities of the world by Victor Colesnicenco.

Excerpt from interview with the artist in North Naples News, April 2022 edition.

LA: Most of your artworks are paintings of various cities: large and small, American, and European. You make them look warm and cozy and somewhat romantic. Why does this theme attract you?

VC: I am trying to run from reality, chaos cities, places and to make my own imaginary, dream city and romantic places. I am willing to see happiness in my plot staging.

LA: Your paintings are filled with nostalgia for the lifestyle of 50’s and 60’s. What do you like about this era?

VC: I like to be in this time of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s- it was the most romantic time. I was inspired by watching these movies and I wish I could live in this era, to live a simple life in renaissance time after the second world war.
