CITY WALLS (1969-1975)

RICHARD TAITTINGER GALLERY is honored to present CITY WALLS (1969-1975), the gallery’s fourth solo exhibition of works by Greek-born American artist
NASSOS DAPHNIS (1914-2010). CITY WALLS (1969-1975) will showcase 19 significant works and one print created by Daphnis during his City Walls period, coinciding with a revitalizing period for New York City and the public arts scene.

CITY WALLS (1969-1975) presents an exemplary series that builds on the ethos of what the City Walls program wanted to instill — a revitalization and appreciation for great artists and to challenge them in monumental ways. It is during this period that we see Nassos’ work explode (literally), with bold stars and diamonds appearing with accurate precision on his canvases.
