Collection: Dinner and drinks

Step into the artistic journey behind Nowak's Sandy Springs restaurant paintings, a project that holds a special place in my heart. Growing up alongside Blaiss in the vibrant streets of New Orleans, our connection runs deep—his stepfather being my first cousin. When his mother approached me to create a restaurant painting brimming with life and people, I eagerly accepted the challenge. Little did I know, it would become my first massive artwork, stretching an impressive 11 feet long.

The first painting captures the essence of a visionary restaurateur, envisioning the finished venue in brilliant teal and white hues. It was an exhilarating experience to bring such grandiosity to life on the canvas. The second painting showcases a bustling bar scene within the restaurant, inviting viewers to explore the depths of the composition. Within each artwork, you'll find a collection of hidden gems—some personal, while others pay homage to pop culture references. The joy lies in allowing the audience to draw their own conclusions, immersing themselves in the narrative woven throughout these mesmerizing pieces.
