Hot Art: Fusing Painting and Photography

"Lunch @ Times Square" by Claudia Salguero.

Photo editing has become a popular way to beautify, correct, or enhance photos, but Claudia Salguero’s “Urbano Beats” uses the technique for a completely different purpose: she digitally paints over a photo and manipulates it to add artistic touches that did not exist before. In this exhibit, combining the realism of a photograph with the fantasy of a painting puts an intriguing postmodern twist on her subjects. Her distinct pieces will be on display at Trinity Art Gallery from Dec. 1 to Jan. 10 (the vernissage takes place Dec. 4 from 1 to 3pm).
