Shah Hadjebi is the consummate watercolorist. He pays close attention to detail and infuses magical color. His renderings range from the aviary sublime to the flash of chrome on a 1957 Chevy. Shah brings us closer to nature with joy and love. He has made a shift collaborating with Al Chailosky. Al’s three-dimensional models are small scale exact replicas of iconic architecture. Shah and Al have been working in their respective mediums on the same urban scenes – from a gritty, manic corner in Chinatown in NYC to the glorious Floridian architecture of Miami Beach.
