Do you love Boston? Do you own a Celtics, Red Sox, Patriots, AND Bruins t-shirt? Are you Boston Strong? Regardless, who doesn’t love this city enough to use a little bit of it in their home decor? We recently discovered a local artist that is creating beautiful modern art inspired by Boston. And not like head-scratching, abstract and obscure art, but art that you can actually afford and appreciate. Meet Jennifer of Modern Map Art.
Jennifer has always had a passion for travel - she’s visited 40 countries! - and a love of maps. She created Modern Map Art to share her passion with the world, literally. Her maps aren’t your usual geographical road map with interstates and lakes labeled; instead, they are simple and straightforward - no street names, just lines. This minimalist approach is intriguing and approachable for all art, Boston, and map lovers.
But Jennifer doesn’t create just maps, oh no, she’s branched into phone cases and pillows, with hopes to add apparel in the future. All major U.S. cities are available on her website, ModernMapArt.com, and she does take custom orders. So next time you’re thinking of how much you adore the City of Champions, why not paste it on your wall!
