street vehicle portraits by kevin cyr

‘good quality products’

kevin cyr is a painter based in brooklyn, new york. many of cyr’s paintings are executed on plywood, reflecting the artist’s subject. as he explains, ‘in a culture in which people are easily lured by the appeal of status-enhancing symbols, i find beauty in derelict cars and unkempt landscapes.’ the cars and other vehicles he paints have character not seen in flashy car ads but the marking’s of a  storied past. cyr removes these vehicles from their original context, giving them a portrait like importance and allows the viewer to re-examine the sights they may take for granted.
