Masi is a watercolorist, but his paintings do not look like watercolor paintings. Watercolor, being a thin medium, organically allows expression of the most delicate subjects, but Masi has developed a novel way to use watercolor thickly, in the same way that others use oils thickly. It is an approach that produces exceptional results. Masi’s unique use of watercolor allows him to capture each bridge’s mass, power, and delicacy.
In 2006, The Artist’s Magazine chose his painting of the Queensboro Bridge, “N.Y. Tramway II,” as First Place winner in the Landscape category in the magazine’s “Best Art” contest. The magazine described “N.Y. Tramway II” as “dark and pulsating” and relating “a stirring, overpowering sensation.” The 2006 contest received some 14,000 entries. Many additional honors have followed.
