2023 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 35 Artwork Size 14x19 Archival Pigment Fine Art
NYC Subway Map VII Bronx Legend is a visually striking archival print created by Cope2, also known as Fernando Carlo, a respected figure in the street art scene. This limited edition print, confined to a series of just 35 signed and numbered pieces, brings a slice of New York's vibrant street culture to the world of fine art collectors. Each print, sized at 14x19 inches, is printed on premium 290gsm Moab Entrada fine art paper, known for its ability to present rich, lasting colors and sharp detail. Fernando Carlo's roots in the graffiti movement are evident in this piece, where he incorporates elements of the New York City subway map into his artwork, a nod to the historical significance of subway graffiti in the city's culture. The piece is a riot of color, typography, and symbolism that captures the gritty essence of Bronx street art. The artwork is a dynamic composition of tags, a signature element of graffiti, overlaid on a background that features the familiar layout of the subway system. This palimpsest effect, where newer layers of paint and text overlay older ones, is reminiscent of the subway cars that served as canvases for graffiti artists in the 1970s and 1980s. Carlo's work is not only a visual feast but also a narrative of the urban landscape and its continuous evolution, mirroring the ever-changing streets of New York City. Each print in the series is imbued with the spontaneous energy of street art despite being carefully reproduced to maintain the integrity of the original work. NYC Subway Map VII Bronx Legend is not just a representation of Cope2's artistry; it is also a cultural artifact that stands as a testament to the enduring influence of graffiti art within the broader context of contemporary art. Collectors of this print own a piece of New York City's legacy, as well as a moment in the timeline of an art form that continues to challenge and redefine the boundaries of visual expression.
