Combining two of the things he loves doing most — painting and writing — author John Neiman presents an artsy mesh of art and literature with his new book. “ART WITH A STORY 2” is a unique work of art as Neiman publishes his never before seen paintings and writes short stories that describe the portraits they precede.

Art and literature have always been a part of the existence of man and by far, the connection of these two has been occasional and irregular. But that is no longer the case as author Nieman publishes his second book that closes the gap between the above mentioned important parts of man’s culture through his “ART WITH A STORY 2.” In his new work, Nieman once again shows brilliance as he weaves the best story that fitly describes various paintings in his book. Along the pages of this delightful and visually enticing offer, Neiman tell stories that explain and reveal the emotions and the interesting stories behind every brush and every stroke.

Presenting the painting first, a story of 600 to 700 words follows the skillfully sketched work, Neiman tells fictional stories which are sometimes funny, romantic, and serious; making readers appreciate the canvas even more. With a unique tale for every piece of landscape, Neiman proves how talented man can be and how art and literature complements each other. A form of expression, Neiman not only tells a story through his paintings but has reinforced the reader’s imagination by the perfect tales after. “ART WITH A STORY 2” is a certified two in one package — a complete treat both for art and fiction lovers.
