Bold Geometric Patterns Form Abstract City Maps


How great are these modern city map posters by artist Jazzberry Blue! In each print, the self-taught artist features a different conceptual city map filled with geometric lines and bold colors. Although these maps are perhaps not the most accurate way to get around town, they can certainly add a splash of color to any home.

Based in Toronto, Jazzberry Blue says, “My goal is to add more wonder to the mix; hopefully on a daily basis.” To produce this series, the artist uses a color palette reminiscent of the 1970’s decade of browns, yellows, and oranges, as well as strong, square shapes arranged in abstract patterns. Fans of the work can purchase a print of New York, Paris, London, New Delhi, Jerusalem, Milan, or Los Angeles from the Jazzberry Blue Etsy shop.
