If you ever thought "I wish I owned that!" while reading about and browsing through the fantastic art and photography here on My Modern Met, you're in luck because many of our featured artists have prints and canvases of their work available through My Modern Shop. As part of our ongoing series of spotlights for the shop, we're reintroducing our readers to works available by some of the best contemporary artists today. This week, we bring you Houston Bowery NYC 1 by Navid Baraty.
The photographer captures the brilliant pop of color on a New York City wall on the corner of Houston and Bowery, a specific spot he calls an "ever-evolving hot spot for graffiti." New York is a big urban city offering an endless supply of motion and character, which is both reflected and challenged in Baraty's photo. While there's plenty of motion and character that reads through the wall, there's the beautiful juxtaposition of a solitary man in black crossing in front—a particular, unknowing character that the photographer was patiently waiting for.
This print is currently available through My Modern Shop.
