W Magazine sent over a link to a fantastic article where writer Diane Solway interviews Canadian artist Karel Funk re: the inspiration behind his portraits and the urbanites they depict.
A stand-out quote from the article?
On how riding the New York City subway changed his career: “I was fascinated by how this boundary of personal space completely disappeared on the subway. You could see the details of somebody’s ear or neck that you’d never observe just socializing with friends because there’s this boundary we all keep.”
Karel’s art will be featured at New York’s 303 Gallery in April. So excited!
