From 1978 for 8 years Berlin worked frenetically, at street level, his finger on the pulse of this great city creating The Manhattan Collection. Living & moving in rhythm to the beat of the streets he pulled together these extraordinary times in this collection. Deep into the throbbing night of NYC he lived his dream, haunting Sheridan Square & St. Marks Place, among others, creating vibrant, urgent pieces that reflect this unique, cultural era. These works, The Manhattan Collection, have never been released by Berlin, they form a central core or spine to much that has followed and occupy a very deep & visceral place within his heart. This release is exciting news and offers art lovers a rare opportunity to see the vision of Sax Berlin at his most personal in these very special pieces.
