A beautifully abstracted portrait and a very well-priced print, any collector who walks away with one of these will be very lucky indeed!

When I see this beautiful little sculpture, I feel the magical realism of Latin American culture coursing through my veins like the pages of A Hundred Years of Solitude.

Charming little works for a great cause, it’s a win-win! These paper dolls are made in the after school classes at the Lower East Side Girls Club, and each has her own story.

Simply a beautiful, well-composed collage work. I'm often drawn to smaller, more precious works and to me this one exemplifies that.

Is it the Florida in me or am I just a sucker for a vividly patterned alligator? Just gorgeous, and the wood backing gives a deeper sense of natural beauty to a piece not lacking in that to begin with.

Julie's work reminds me of places I know but put through a Dream Blender to create all new landscapes that feel at once familiar and uncanny. Each is a beautiful homage to a real place, through Julie's lens.

Kal's works are the kind of art you could never get tired of looking at, calming and ethereal but full of surprise and discovery. His larger ones you could really lose yourself in, but for a taste of that in a smaller package, these gorgeous signets are a great start.

I love all of the works Landon is showing at Superfine! but this one strikes a cord. It's intricate, story-drive, and who can resist a woodcut?

Who ever thought a ballpoint pen could bring forth so many incredible, nested figures? I can barely write my name. In the hand of a master like Tai, a grasshopper and an anglerfish emerge from a slightly worse-for-the-wear teddy and it all works.

"Wave Boy" is a charmer, like a cross between a young Duke Kahanamoku and a mysterious dreamboat. A great example of Kenneth's work for an entry-level collector.

The craftsmanship and precious factor that goes into each of these - I can't get over it. One of Andrew's pieces is perfect for someone who wants to get into 3-dimensional art but stay rooted in paper, paint, and pigment.

All of Parris' works exemplify the raw, primal energy of an artist who knows what he wants to say, but I particularly dig the composition of this piece.

Our environment is changing rapidly, and Kenneth is boldly stoking that topic with his work. Owning a piece like this is a great way to bring beauty to a tough conversation and remind yourself of what we face.

The subway map is a subtle homage to New York, indiscernible to out-of-towners but obviously recognizable to all New Yorkers, and Nina makes it double more interesting by fashioning this one entirely out of our mode of currency - the MetroCard.

Never before have I met an artist so mutually adored by both jaded art critics and novice collectors. Brian's works have an innocent energy to them, but each has its own tongue-in-cheek humor. Superfine! wouldn't be complete without him, and nor will your collection.

Here's a witchy and wonderful work conjuring up old magic in the woods. I may be biased (I have two of Deming's pieces!) but I think this is a great piece not only for the price, but in general.

I love when works that are presumably abstract take all different shapes depending how you look at them, from what distance, and where you place them. Marcy's "Milagro" (Spanish for "miracle") is precisely that: a small miracle.

Encaustic works are amazing to have in your collection. It's like by looking at them alone, the room they live in automatically has a texture it didn't have before. Wade's work brings me to that storybook place I so long to be in, and I love this one.
