Growing up during the ’50s & ’60s in Oakland, Johansen inspiration derived from urban scenes that were painted on buildings. This lead him to study urban artists of the past, and to pay homage to those talented creators that most of the world will never know who they are.

In “The Lights of Broadway”, LeRoy Neiman brings together a vibrant collage of the world’s most renowned musicals, and displays them on billboards in the heart of Times Square in New York City. He used black paper to display a nighttime view, and to make the neon colors stand out.

LeRoy wanted to display a numerous amount of plays that the average person would of at least seen one of or heard of in their lifetime. My Fair Lady was deliberately placed at the top in bright pink, because it was LeRoy’s favorite play. From the foot traffic on every block, to the yellow taxis and fancy cars driving down street & police officers on horseback, Neiman wanted you to get the feeling that you spent a night in city that never sleeps.

LeRoy Neiman – Serigraph Artist
LeRoy Neiman is best known for his use of striking colors and his lively scenes of sporting events and leisure activities. He interpreted the life he knew. The setting of the serigraph is a Las Vegas casino. The viewer’s attention is brought to the center table where the dealer and the many gamblers are playing the game of “21.” The gambler’s faces are expressionless to portray their “poker faces.” Neiman has a great talent for making the observer feel a part of the scene. “21” is a fast moving game. Neiman has a very sudden style about his artwork. His style helps give the observer the impression of the rick associated with the game. Some debate the scene depicted is inside the MGM Grand. You can also see many of LeRoy Neiman’s other pieces inside Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas are center around the lion. The MGM Grand has a lion habitat and much of its entertainment includes the lions.

Tamar the Daughter-in-Law of Judas – Lithograph By Marc Chagall
“Tamar the Daughter-in-law of Judas” is just one of many of Marc Chagall’s original lithographs that can be seen at Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas, Nevada. Chagall created this color lithograph in 1960. He was born in 1887 and was a Russian-French artist until 1985. He was probably one of the first European modernists to be seen. Chagall never forgot his Jewish culture either. His Jewish background probably inspired much of his work. Art tells a story; it is history. A picture is worth a million words. Chagall was asked to illustrate the Old Testament; therefore; he traveled to Palestine. He wanted to experience the “Holy Land” as it is sometimes referred to as for himself to give him inspiration for his work. “Tamar the Daughter-in-law of Judas” wasn’t an illustration used in the Old Testament, so it was probably for himself. To remind himself of his background. To be proud of it. Later in life, he was not a practicing Jew, but he did consider himself always a Christian.

The story of Tamar and Judas can be read in the Book of Genesis. In this piece, Chagall didn’t decide to use many colors in this piece: red and black. I don’t think this painting requires much color. Red is primary which seems fitting because it is bold. From the story, we can see Tamar’s personality as bold. Chagall’s choice of red captures the viewer’s attention. Red also invokes much emotion. A biblical scene should evoke such emotion. Many of Marc Chagall’s paintings can be found at Centaur Art Galleries of Las Vegas. All of Chagall’s paintings have a story behind them and a very real to the artist himself.
