Nina Boesch Uses Recycled MetroCards to Create Compelling and Unique Works of Art
Tuesday Wustrack – Muze Staff Writer
New York City is a place people all around the world dream of visiting. The bright lights of Time Square, the yellow taxi cabs aggressively honking their horns and high-rise buildings surround city-dwellers and tourists as they stroll the busy streets. This hustle and bustle of city life is what draws people from all around the world.
One of those people is Nina Boesch, an interaction and graphic designer whose work has been branching out to a more unique style of art—MetroCard Collages. Made from expired and cut-up MetroCards, these one-of-a-kind pieces serve as a tribute to New York City living. Not only do they portray famous scenes of the city, such as the Brooklyn Bridge and Empire State Building, the pieces also include antique subway signs and portraits of famous icons like Conan O’Brien, Robert DeNiro and Audrey Hepburn. She’ll even do custom pieces per your request!
But it’s not just the pictures of New York that make Boesch’s artwork so phenomenal and dedicated to the city. It’s also in the materials she uses. Since her pieces are made solely from old MetroCards, the pieces embody the essence New York in an environmentally friendly way.
Even though she has been creating these fantastic collages since 2001, Boesch is finally gaining a large following. Her work has gotten media attention from New York Daily News, Huffington Post and HOW Magazine. This young artist is just getting started and will only get bigger.
Whether you are a city native, a frequent visitor or just an admirer from afar, Nina Boesch’s mosaic-like artwork can bring a bit of New York City life right into your home.
