David Kapp (b.1953-) is known for his expressionistic oil paintings of contemporary urban landscapes, which capture the harsh kinetic beauty of his native, New York City. Kapps works focus on his everyday life as a New Yorker by capturing graphic city scenes full of bright speeding headlights and pedestrians scurrying around sidewalks in a blur, contrasted by backdrops of sky scrapers and a dark night sky.
