Michael Flohr, “Night on the Town”

Las Vegas! A city of revelry, excess, and celebration! What better way to celebrate New Year’s Eve than to head for Sin City? Once known just for its gambling and casino culture, today Las Vegas offers something for everyone. New Year’s Eve promises no end of nightclub parties, fireworks on The Strip, and celebrity performing artists, but on the weekend of December 27-29, The Forum Shops hosted an artist of another kind. Michael Flohr, famous for his contemporary expressionist oil paintings depicting urban nightlife, exhibited a new body of original paintings at Exclusive Collections Gallery at The Forum Shops.

City of Lights

Flohr’s paintings take him all over the United States, and he records each breathtaking scene on canvas with his unique painting style. Somehow, Flohr captures the very essence of an individual city and yet maintains continuity in his painting style.

This year, Michael Flohr’s show was titled “Night on the Town”. His compositions focus upon the close, romantic moments that play out on city streets every night. Flohr builds layers of bright color, beginning with an acrylic underpainting and slowly building up a dynamic story with thick, decisive brush strokes. As he painted at the easel in the gallery, onlookers were able to see how Flohr’s talent takes over the canvas.

If you were unable to attend this celebration, be sure to RSVP to Flohr’s next exhibition in 2014!
