Best of New York 2015

Best Affordable Wall Art

  • Object_ify 139

    139 Essex St., nr. Rivington St.; 863-207-0783

    One wall of SVA alum Maria Candanoza’s tiny art-and-objet shop is magnetic white Formica, accommodating a heavy rotation of poster-size photo prints by local artists, for under $30: A risograph of pink power strips by David Brandon Geeting would look great next to that succulent-laden sill, while graffiti-inspired Fuck N Shit prints, by Jack Ridley, could liven up a drab NYU dorm. Some images have been printed on silk scarves ($120), while others are reproduced museum-shop style on postcards ($2 each) for tacking above the bed in four-by-four grids.
