I went by Utrecht earlier this week and their canvas prices damn near doused my fledgeling brush stroke dreams. But I was roaming around my neighborhood and came up on this:
Yo!!! Any painters and visual artists might wanna get up on this! This sale is un-f*cking-believable!! Blick Art Materials on Bond Street between Broadway and Lafayette must be trying to drive traffic to their store on some real sh*t!
This sale is non-discriminatory: all sizes and shapes of their studio traditional style are included in this sale!
The discount starts at 50% off and can go as high as 70%, depending on the volume you purchase:
For those artsy types who failed general math in high school, they even have a grid to help you calculate your discount:
I'm definitely going to grab a few tomorrow. I've been tinkering with a few ideas since I've been in Basquiat mode these past few months. Actually, Blick (point B on the map below) is located just a block away from his Great Jones loft (point A on the map below) where he passed away in 1988:
Now there's a morbid stroke of irony for you (no pun intended). At any rate, stock up on canvases at Blick. If you don't live in a studio apartment the size of a roach motel, that is. Sale ends October 12th, but y'all should probably strike while the iron is hot.
