Contemporary master Daniel Sprick will soon showcase a number of recent works in New York City. Ranging from extraordinarily realistic portraits to haunting still lifes and beyond, there’s something here for every fine art connoisseur.
The artworks of Daniel Sprick represent some of the best contemporary realism and imaginative realism have to offer. Blending modern psychological and human experiences with traditional techniques, Sprick is on the cutting edge of fine art in the 21st century.

Featuring 16 stunning new works at Gerald Peters Gallery in New York City, the show offers a range of interesting subjects, including hyper-realistic portraiture, still life, and urban landscape. Via the gallery, “There is a tension at play in his work as he explores the dichotomy between realism and abstraction, beauty and grit, tradition and experiment, planned and improvised. He exhibits extraordinary attention to detail, but then by leaving an unfinished edge or a sweeping gestural brushstroke, he reminds us that these are, after all, still paintings.”
