On Monday, 24 April 2017 at 07:00 pm, the NYC Matthew Gallery opened the 36th solo exhibition of the acclaimed painter and artist, Shaya Weinberger. This time, the established American graffiti artist presented part of his most recent artworks, in an exhibition entitled ‘Metastable Sphere’. As a professional artist and painter, with a strong and vivid use of colors, original style, and authentic thematic approach, he is the painter of his own “internal” universe.
Shaya Weinberger is representative of The Metastabilian Movement (TMM), a new international scientific and artistic movement, and a longtime member of the American Art Association. TMM is a creative exploration of the human sixth sense of the complementary nature, highlighted by creative self-discovery.
So far, Weinberger has prepared 35 solo exhibitions, participated in over 176 group exhibitions, as well as in over 100 art colonies, symposiums and artistic residence in the U.S. and abroad. He has received several important national and international awards for his artistic work. He currently lives and works in New York City.
As we look at his artwork, we can’t help but ask ourselves: Who we are, where we come from and where we are going? The light in his electromagnetic radiation leaves a mark on these pictures, and it can be analyzed in a purely visual and artistic sense. Through composition, color spectrum, color expression, spatial effects of color, balance, and contrast, he creates a symbolic and associative role of color with complex rhythm and harmony.
The Matthew Gallery in New York will be displaying ‘Metastable Sphere’ until 18 May 2017. This is the latest series of paintings by Shaya Weinberger. On weekdays, the opening hours are from 09 am to 07 pm, and on Saturdays from 08 to 02 pm.
As an artist, Weinberger offers playful energy, collecting and barely pausing in his individual work. Over the years he has developed his mixing styles and ways of interpretation forms. In his artwork, he uses a lot of element found in the western way of forms presenting, but he also includes a fair amount of traditional forms, similar to those of the Chinese artists. So, stylistic features bring up the idea of the East within the conventions of the West.

Being an artist that comes from Delaware is a rare thing these days. Especially an experienced graffiti painter born in the 70’s. Having finished a secondary chemical school, Shaya Weinberger gave birth to his interest for chemical paints. Being a fairly successful student, he tried to do something different as a hobby than other students. So that is how he chose graffiti. Being an artist is completely different to being a scientist, a chemist to be exact. So he embraced this new passion of his and copied some graffiti artist styles and had something to begin with…
Work wise, Shaya Weinberger developed into a fine scientist. He was accepted as an optician for short time, but this success was short lived. He worked as a baby sitter for most of the time and was into child care as a part time job, which lately evolved into a full time job. All of this happened while Mr. Shaya Weinberger was in New York, looking for new experiences, new inspirations…
Being a chemist, one could say that he is a scientist. Many professionals would not agree with that of course but in a manner he totally is. He even managed to inspire many colleagues that he worked with in college, and even some of them became top level professional chemists and doctors. Many people would be blessed to know a person like Mr. Weinberger, and some are proud to know him in person.
