Based in New York City, Weinstein is a classically-trained painter whose art was aesthetically influenced by the Barbizon, the Orientalist, Baroque, and the Venetian, artists. He strives to paint genre scenes and portraits from the perspective of a traveler, being intrigued by what is common in us all, and also by those fashions, daily rituals, or details that make people incredibly different.

His art is in the collections of Green Mountain College, Dean Whitter and Associates Collection, Burlington VT, Volusia County School Board Collection, Daytona Beach, Florida, Robert Mounts Collection, and also on loan to the University Gallery, University of Florida. Since of 2012, he has been teaching Illustration in Manhattan at the High School of Art and Design. Currently, Weinstein can be found while teaching full-time, or in his studio sketching and painting. The artist’s aim is to show a value and dignity in being “Mundane”, and “Ordinary” and an appreciation for greenness in anything “refined.” His artistic interests are found in culture and diversity.
