Californian artist Kenny Scharf is a remarkable figure of New York early eighties’ art scene in the fields of painting, sculpture, and performance, alongside iconic artists like Keith Haring. Pursuing his on-going process of connecting fine arts and pop culture, he has covered Louis Vuitton’s giant silk crepe square with a colourful collage of astronomic motifs and symbols on a blurred psychedelic background.
For André Saraiva, his studio drop cloth was the inspiration for the background of his interpretation of Louis Vuitton’s Monogram shawl. Once he had translated his paint spatters to the luxurious silk and wool wrap, it became a natural habitat for ‘Mr. A’, the artist’s signature character, his asymmetrical eyes character, who inhabits the walls and art galleries of Paris as well as in many other international cities.
True to his name, derived from the Inca sun god, INTI is inspired by ancestral Andean culture, which he transcribes in brightly coloured, monumental works. He revisits the giant square with a sun motif Infused with warm shades of gold and orange, referencing the image of ‘Wiracocha’, god of TIWANAKU culture.
