James Michalopoulos explains that when he first started capturing the architecture of New Orleans in paint, he often went on nighttime excursions to avoid the heat of day. He brought a radio and worked to the accompaniment of WWOZ, a station that broadcasts New Orleans music. Michalopoulos says, “I think of my style as being primarily musical. I’m very influenced by the culture I’m living in.”
