About this Piece
Printing, especially serigraphy, was LeRoy’s most prolific medium. During his busiest time period, Neiman printed an average of six serigraphs per year. The works were printed in limited edition runs by hand in New York City at several print shops through the years, namely at BrandX. Serigraphs or silkscreens are created one color at a time and sometimes have up to 60 layers of color per print. The serigraphs are recognizable by the artist’s signature primary color palette and expressionist style. Neiman also used printing techniques like monoprinting, etching, lithography.
Widely known for his exuberance and celebratory mindset, Neiman was unmatched in his ability to portray cultural events and festivals. The artist painted Broadway show sets, illustrated album covers, and created posters for events like the Newport Jazz Festival. These works convey movement, music, and the sheer excitement of partaking in a momentous occasion.
