Artwork: Self Portrait by Kiara & Shadowbox Piece by Unknown
Purchased/Found: West Broadway & Spring
Price: $0 & $60

Pitch:
The first piece is a self portrait of my sister Kiara. She created this for a final project in college a few years ago. The small art piece next to Kiara was done by a street artist in Soho. He is from Vermont and sells these unique shadowbox pieces (made out of wire from a porch screens) on the streets in West Broadway and Spring. I paid $60. I don’t know his name. If the light hits it just right, a unique shadow forms. It’s usually in our kitchen. I give a bit more explanation below.

Hi, I’ve been way too shy about entering any of these contests, but I love art and I think I have a unique way of finding and attaining good, original, affordable art.

I started collecting original art about ten years ago. However, it wasn’t until I moved to the New York City area with my husband three years ago that I really started.

Where?
I buy my art on the streets of New York City.

There is also this big grizzly of a guy named Steven Duffy who sells fantastic etchings for $25 or more. There are some that’s less. All of these guys are in the same spot in Soho – around West Broadway and Spring. Duffy has sold several pieces to some famous celebrities scouting the streets for art.
