Damon Kowarsky is excited and motivated by travel, and has spent much of his artistic career drawing cities and villages, as well as people and artifacts, in North Africa, West Asia, Europe and the Middle East. He has what appears to be an obsessive interest in the forms of the city. In Kowarsky's hand, even the most chaotic public intersection appears quiet and clean, an effect he compares to 19th century photography.
