BOP Spotlight: Cheap Modern Art

As Center City apartments continue their morph from trinity to loft, expansive, blindingly white walls from Fishtown to South Philly cry out for a respite from so much minimalist chic. Where can you get a Pop Art knockoff, giclée collage or Zen-inspired canvas transfer that’s jumbo enough to fit your open layout and cheap enough to let you pay your mortgage? New this spring, Absolute Abstract specializes in frameless art (stretched across canvas) that’s 40 inches by 40 inches or larger and around $300 a hang. It’s decorator art a 20-something could love. 141 South 13th Street, 215-733-0190; absoluteabstractart.com.
