Steampunk-ish World Map, Cartographilia #1
Setting up context:
- I’m a cartographilia: I love maps (and consequently cartography art).
- I’m a closet steampunk.
Alright, so it’s not really steampunk. In fact, this piece is titled Night of the Long Grass, which is nothing remotely steampunk. Though when you look at it, there are no sightings of Long Grass either, so maybe the artist had a night of long grass, if you catch my drift. :)
Look at the world with wanderlust. Look closer to each detail and you will discover more. Get lost in this piece by Diego Patino, exclusively designed for Americanflat.
Only 100 piece in production, and costs $250 from AmericanFlat. Proceeds directly support the artist.
If you love art, but feels nauseated by the idea that you’re associating yourself with snobbish wannabes, then take a look at AmericanFlat.
Americanflat caters to the art lover, not the art investor, offering an array of collections that conveniently fit your lifestyle. The Americanflat mission is simple: To produce museum-quality, exclusively curated wall art from impressive, hand-selected artists, while making that artwork accessible and affordable for everyone. We do this by partnering with artists who believe in our concept and by using a unique giclee production process that allows us to cut costs, without skimping on quality.
How it came about:
A few years ago, Americanflat Founder and President, Giorgio Piccoli, moved to New York City to begin work with JPMorgan. In an attempt to decorate the walls of his tiny apartment with artwork, he was led down a path of frustration and disappointment. “I would see a great piece of large art that I wanted to purchase and the gallerist would tell me that it was north of $5,000,” says Piccoli. “I would ask if there was anything closer to my price range and they would just laugh. Right then, I knew I wanted to create a brand that was not for the art investor but for the art lover.”
God bless this man!
