Meet The Artist

Dr. Spiro studied art as a second major while preparing for a career in medicine and surgery. He illustrated many medical journal articles, chapters in books, and pamphlets for patient resource information for national societies.

He was acclaimed as a national winner for surgeon artist in 1994 (the only year he entered!). He was on of the main artist in a show at APEX ART in NYC in 2008 that won acclaim in “I am ART” Plastic Surgery as Art which was reviewed by the NY Times.

Recently, Dr. Spiro was given a coveted commission for Art Basel Miami 2018, in Wynwood Miami Florida, where he painted a 32’ x 14’ foot mural which stood for one year in the heart of Wynwood.

Every patient walking through his office is treated to a gallery of reproductions of many of his pieces in oil, graphite, and photography.

REFLECTIONS  (THE SERIES)

Artist: Scott Spiro, MD
Medium: Oil on Hardboard

Details: Dr. Spiro has created a series called Reflections. This grouping shows two of his oil paintings and four sets of photographic reflection essays. 

The oil paintings include 1) the reflection of a water tower in the plate glass windows of a modern building in downtown NYC. 2) the reflection of buildings in a canal in Amsterdam. Dr. Spiro loves how the architecture is shown bending into curves and unusual shapes.

The photographs tell the story of architecture in Budapest and Prague as it is seen distorted in the reflection of car windows.
