Born in 1978 in Germany, Nina Boesch is a New York based designer and artist. Besides her professional work as interaction designer for the large exhibit design firm Ralph Appelbaum Associates, Boesch focuses on her non-digital, artistic interest. She creates collages from used and expired MetroCards – an artistic venture she started more than 10 years ago. Boesch’s collages are mosaic-like artworks created from cut-up pieces of New York City subway tickets. Since MetroCards offer a very limited color palette (yellow, orange, blue, black and white), her body of work has a very distinct and recognizable visual style, yet every collage is a unique one-of-a-kind artwork. Boesch’s collages have been exhibited in New York and California, enjoy an international audience and have found homes with art collectors all over the world.
