Hey Taxi!

Burton Morris, Hey Taxi!, 2012 is a hand-painted acrylic on canvas painting featuring a bright yellow classic New York taxi cab which appears almost moving in space with the red vibrant background.  It is signed on the front, and signed, titled, and dated on the back.

Burton Morris was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1964. He earned his bachelor of fine arts degree at Carnegie Mellon University in 1986. After graduation, Burton started a career as an art director in advertising. He established the Burton Morris Studios in 1990. That year he began making his small post-pop icons into large-scale paintings. He would choose one subject per composition to create what he calls “an instant happening”for the viewer. He used his background in advertising to blur the lines between high and low art.
