INSPIRED || ART: Jen Bekman Gallery

Living in the LES neighborhood of NYC, I walk to the adjacent neighborhoods of Nolita and Soho all the time. In my travels to Nolita, crossing Bowery onto Spring, I've walked past the Jen Bekman Gallery tons of times. It wasn't until perusing a recent issue of Lonny Magazine that I realized how unique the gallery is!  Bekman's gallery runs a site called 20x200 where you can purchase a variety of art pieces ranging from mixed media, photographs, to paintings at great prices. You can buy pieces of art for as little as $20. What I love about this creation is that it underscores the fundamental meaning of art: it's not about how much it is or how famous it is; it's about what it means to you personally.  My browsing on this site has revealed so many pieces that I'd love have. Take a look and get lost!

Here are some of my favorites:
