My Modern Shop Spotlight #1 – Ignite by Alexis Mire


We’ve recently announced the launch of My Modern Shop, a project inspired by our readers looking to purchase affordable artwork created by today’s most contemporary artists featured here on My Modern Met. To give you a taste of the content featured in the shop, we’ll be spotlighting a piece of artwork or photography each week. Sparks literally fly in our first featured work titled Ignite by photographer Alexis Mire.

The creative 20-year-old does a stellar job of emanating an infectious air of good times that you wish could last forever.

This print is currently available to purchase through My Modern Shop.
