NEW YORK (AP) - Chris “Daze” Ellis’ paintings of New York City landmarks pulse with the same energy that recall his early days spray-painting subway trains.

The former graffiti artist’s work is currently being shown at the Museum of the City of New York.

Chris “Daze” Ellis: The City is My Muse” is on view through May 1, 2016.

It features paintings that depict the pulse and diversity of the city. Times Square, Coney Island and the subway system are among the iconic scenes, many rendered in a dazzling array of colors.

The Brooklyn-born Ellis transitioned to the canvas in 1980 after being introduced to a studio setting by an art collector.



Among his public projects is a mural for a ferry terminal in Hong Kong.
