531 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a texture; photograph created by Dan Piech in Manhattan, New York City

Concrete Canvas: FDR & Houston, Horizontal

531 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Manhattan, New York City

Dan Piech's "Concrete Canvas" series captures the accidental beauty that serendipitously occurs when the concrete beneath New Yorkers' feet is inadvertently graced by spilled paint, fallen debris, expanding cracks, chemical stains, and other delightful visual elements. An avid runner, Piech has spent over three years traversing every single Manhattan street in search of these overlooked "artworks" that have become part of the fabric of the city.

As the founder of the VAST artist collective, Piech uses advanced imaging techniques and equipment to create unprecedented gigapixel-quality photographs that capture every intricate detail of these ephemeral designs. The exceptionally high resolution photographs are then printed in large formats, resulting in impeccably precise physical replicas of the walkways.

Each Concrete Canvas piece embodies the unique soul of New York and challenges us to find beauty in the overlooked, the accidental, the minuscule, and the transient.

Fine art print

We spared no expense in the creation of the museum-caliber fine art prints for Dan Piech's Concrete Canvas series. Our fine art prints are made using the highest quality, state-of-the-art inkjet printing processes and materials. Our printer uses pigment inks (not dye-based inks) carefully laid down onto premium, extremely-smooth paper to ensure the maximum amount clarity, vibrancy, and color reproduction. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

You can purchase one of our fine art prints as just the paper print (that you can frame locally) or the print mounted inside of one of our handcrafted frames made from the highest quality Italian wood. The mount causes the print to appear to float effortlessly within the frame and the resulting gap between the print and the frame border acts as a visual mat, providing depth and elegance to the piece. This moulding style and format was specifically chosen by the artist Dan Piech to be used for his Concrete Canvas series.

Your piece has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the rear of the frame and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Note: to fully show off the beauty of the print and reinforce the illusion that it is actually the NYC sidewalk concrete, there is no glazing on the front of the piece. Click on the icons below to learn more.
