Harold Silvers tells The Rickie Report, “You may have seen my pointillism designs in the windows of Cartier Jewelers or Bonwit Teller. Now you can see what I have been creating since leaving the graphic art world. I moved to Southern Florida five years ago and have gone back to my roots as an artist. I graduated from NYC Community College for Commercial Art and Parsons School of Design for Graphic Design.”

 

D-24x36-1

“Steel Wave” by Harold Silvers

 

 

 

Harold has used a radiograph pen, magic marker, stencils and air brush techniques as well as computer design. He explains, “My pointillism designs as have to do with Nature, Time, Space and Infinity. I started pointillism in my college days, and decided that I should get back to doing it again, being retired. I make the designs one dot at a time.”

 

 

 

D5A-24x36

“Optical” by Harold Silvers

 

 

 

 

 

 

How does he keep all of the design elements in perspective?  He says, “one has to have a certain mind set to do this kind of art. I usually have a concept of how I want the design to look before I start… Sometimes I let the dots take me for the ride.”

 

 

D19A-24x36

“Burst” by Harold Silvers

Harold offers prints on paper from 6 x 9, and digital prints on canvas up to 30 x 45. He can also make color variations of the design. Harold makes the highest quality Giclee’s. At times, he might show one of his designs completed on translucent film with a light behind it.

Here we see an example of one of Harold’s pieces lit. He used a process with film negatives and color key prints, that is no longer available.  These prints are made of 3 transparent color keys.  They are sandwiched between clear glass in the front and translucent plexiglass in the back. New designs are printed on translucent white film.

Mr. Fisher remarked, “There was a terrific pool of artists to choose from. One of the great things about this changing exhibition is that artists can be well known and established, in galleries and museums, or they can be students. Everybody has an equal chance to get into the exhibition. Although the show has a Florida flavor because it showcases Florida artists, it shows a wide range of styles and techniques, and all of the work is of exceptional interest and quality.”

The Northwood Village Mural Project was conceived in early 2014 with Northwood Village Merchants and Proponents Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla, Billy Manthy, William Halliday, Craig McInnis, Eduardo Mendieta and the West Palm Beach CRA. The West Palm Beach CRA and Edaurdo Mendieta spearheaded the initial Artist search and saw the first three murals in Northwood Village through to completion. Currently, there are several completed murals adorning the walls of various buildings in Northwood Village.These murals were created by Eduardo Mendieta, Amanda Valdes, Craig McInnis and now Tiffany Beasi.

 

 

Artist, Tiffany Beasi

Artist, Tiffany Beasi

This Mural at OSGS by Tiffany is part of the Northwood Village Mural Project but was produced solely by the owners of OSGS Gallery (as opposed to the initial murals funded by the CRA). Tiffany has painted murals in other Palm Beach County locations (Downtown Lake Worth at Dave’s Last Resort) as well.

The Northwood Village Mural Project is now in the hands of the Village Merchants and future growth will depend on merchant follow-through, sponsorships, and overall exposure to generate Northwood Village as a Mural Destination. Murals projects have thrived in many cities and create a fabulous environment for all to enjoy.
