Nicola Villa is a Genoa-based artist whose paintings are sophisticated examples of watercolour with an urban sensibility. Especially eye-opening for viewers expecting pastel landscapes - they are in for a surprise! Villa’s work is technically nuanced, all fine lines and layers, with an air of newsprint about it. Several pieces are identified as having 125th Street as a setting, so it is interesting to see the results of an outsider’s observation of this part of New York.
