Floor Of New York Stock Exchange Print By Impressionist Artist Kamil Kubik For Sale
If you are not familiar with International artist, KAMIL KUBIK, please google his name to see what an amazing artist....and person he is. We were dear friends for many years and he gave me numerous pieces of his art so that my entire home displayshis beautiful Impressionist talent. This 17" x 21" (paper size) print....THE FLOOR OF THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE in New York Cityis ANOTHER one of my favorites because it captures the energy...and the INSANITY of the business that goes on in that space. I never tire of looking at it....or any of his art actually. I always wonder how a human being can take a brush or a pastel and create somethinglike this. LOOK at the detail and activity.!! How does anyone do that??? Kamil could not only do it....he could do it in a day. Just like that......from life...to canvas. I have watched him create and it is something to behold. I had commissioned him a number of years ago to paint the NEW JERSEY STATE HOUSE as paart of a special political project I was involved in at the time. Avery goodfriend of mine, who was also a collector of fine art introduced me to Kamil thinking that he might be able to help me. We immediately connected and truly enjoyed each other's company.....probably becauseI am also of Czech heritage. Kamil LOVED that and he easily put together some ideas as to how he might help me and our shared working experiences and friendship began to form. The first painting he did for mewas our State House and I watched him that day as he happily set up his easel and paints and went to work. By the end of the afternoon he had created my masterpiece and it was justgorgeous.......like most of what he has done.
This particular print of this well known, exciting "day at the office" ...somebody's office anyway.....is bright, colorful and makes you feel like you are part of the action.The hands in the air, the machines, the groups of traders conducting their daily business.....is all right there in this Kubik painting. Kamil claimed that he was even a bit intimidated thatday to have been given this special pass into what you see. And trust me....Kamil was not intimidated by much!! He could not believe how much went on during the day there but once he got comfortable, heenjoyed how hard these traders worked and that he was a part of it in some small way. The average selling price of this printconstantly variesbut certainly not less than $300 - $400. I will list thisprint for $200 and it would be a steal at that price. I am obviously hoping for more. It is signed by Kamil.... and is nearly perfect...if not perfect. (I am always hesitant to claim ANYTHING is perfect because what truly is??? But I believethis print isas close to perfect as it gets!) . Please e-mail any questions you may have and I willprovide a brief Bio of the artist at the end of this Description for those of you who may not be familiar with this incredible artist or his international body of work. Be very careful if you find Kamil's prints throughout the internet as there are a number of "knock-offs" that are being marketed for a very low price. I know that can be tempting but if you want something that is genuine and signed by Kamil you can trust buying from me....or any reputable, established gallery that handles Kamil's art. A good rule is that if it's too good to be true....it probably is not genuine. Just be verycareful and Happy offerding!!!
