Shana Bowes Collage

Some painters prefer to create big art. Atlanta’s Shana Bowes likes to go small.

The artist: Bowes grew up in Alpharetta, lived in New York City for 18 years and moved back to Atlanta in 2014. She studied art at Oglethorpe University and earned a master’s degree in arts administration from SCAD’s Atlanta campus. After returning to Atlanta, the lifelong artist began creating small, simple images that reminded Bowes of her past and the South in her new series: tiny paintings: BIG CITIES.

The goods: 8”x10” matted prints ($25). Each print is an exact replica of the original image, which she paints within a 1.5” box.

What’s popular: Krispy Kreme  (below) followed by UGA Arches and the (Georgia) Tech Tower.

Big break: Having her originals for sale in the Swan Coach House Gallery show in Atlanta “Little Things Mean a Lot,” through Dec. 30.

What’s next:  Savannah landmarks.

Where to buy:
