Artist Statement: In honor of celebrating Pride in NYC, the Sing For Hope Pride Piano represents
the colorful, diverse and melting-pot culture of the city.
CONCEPT – New York City, home to people from all over the world proudly celebrate and embrace
diversity. Regardless of your race, gender, age, sexual orientation, it is a home built by love.
THE RAINBOW – Borrowing all the colors of the pride flag, the piano will be covered in a soft, blended,
free-form rainbow. Using my signature sponging style to create a sky that is bright and full of colors.
‘LOVE IS LOVE’ in 100 languages – The slogan ‘love is love’ has been the primary slogan used by the
Human Rights Campaign. This simple yet powerful statement will be translated in 100 different
languages forming a word cloud that will be painted over the rainbow pattern in bright white. The cloud
represents the multi-cultural population of the city and will be inclusive to all the tourists that will be coming
to NYC from all around the world.
THE SKYLINE – Rising from the bottom of the piano will be the skyline of NYC blocked out in bright white;
featuring iconic buildings and landmarks like the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and The
Love is Love
