Coach has officially unveiled a printed 70-metre artwork that amplifies creativity, exuberance and diversity at the Botanic Gardens MRT station. The project was conceptualised in New York City to celebrate the symbiotic relationship between fashion and street art. It made its debut earlier this year with a series of murals splashed across the city and put together by 13 influential street artists.
Meet the "Vandal Gummy," an iconic piece by Brooklyn-based @WhisBe, whose moniker stands for What Is Beauty. The contemporary artist draws inspiration from Andy Warhol’s use of commercial imagery and Basquiat’s disruption of public spaces. For this 20-foot iteration in Greenpoint, he filled the oversized figure with a faded Signature pattern. “By colliding seemingly innocent images with meaningful messages, I hope my work sparks thoughtful dialogue.” Swipe left, to see more on the piece and WhisBe's work. #CoachNY . . . . ? 12 Franklin Street, Brooklyn
Through the use of contemporary bubble characters, layered shapes and saturated colors, self-taught artist @drinkala creates singular pieces that channel his personal thoughts and emotions. “I’d like people to walk away from seeing a mural or painting and be inspired in some way.” #CoachNY . . . ?458 Jefferson Street, Brooklyn
Singapore’s version is created by the talented artists Dain and Such. The mural riffs on Coach’s iconic monogram, but injected with urban illustrations. That’s not the end of this collaborative effort: A special collection of ready to wear pieces, tote bags and small leather goods will be launched in July, so stay tuned.
