“That extraordinary final print of ‘Times Square’ on DisplayTrans media with the Epson11800 printer was exactly the way I’d envisioned the result,” said Monroy. “I’ve tried other wide-format printers and media to reproduce my work, and this time, I really see a difference. The colors are beautiful and vibrant, the blacks are rich and dark, and the flesh tones are warm and natural.”
The “Times Square” image constantly surprises its fans. “Not only can you see all the facial expressions and look right into windows, but you can spot the trees at the very end toward Central Park,” commented one viewer. Another said, “I feel I could step right into it and hear that taxi driver hitting his horn and that motorcycle roaring right before I walk right into the toy store.”
Monroy was asked if he plans to top the artistic and technical achievement of the “Times Square” work. “With this technology behind me, who knows where my imagination will go?” said Monroy, who now has established roots in Berkeley, CA. There are other iconic landmarks to recreate in wide format, but “Times Square” will always be close to this former New Yorker’s heart.
