Photos Of BSA #2 : The Red Chair Under the U-Bahn

Happy Holidays! We’re celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of the next by thanking BSA readers, friends, and family for all of your support in 2022. We have selected some of our favorite shots by our Editor of Photography, Jaime Rojo, and we’re sharing a new one every day to celebrate all our good times together, our hope for the future, and our love for the street.

Do you believe that the only way to make an impact with art on the street is to paint multi-story murals of cute kittens, mysterious women, or zestful geometrics?

Try this tiny little red chair suspended under the U-Bahn elevated train tracks.

Floating perilously close to the seam of your imagination, this crimson seat has remained suspended in our minds most of this year – returning us to Jaime Rojo’s photo again periodically. Does it have a special meaning? Is it part of a set of other furniture? Is this simply one of the hundreds floating throughout the city that we didn’t spot?

The lesson we decided to learn is that one cannot underestimate the impact that their artwork may have.
