Banksy for Greenpeace

A Bonham’s auction house employee poses for photographers in front of ‘Save or delete Jungle Book’ by British Artist Banksy in London. The piece is expected to sell for between £60,000- £80,000 pounds (93,000 to 124,000 US dollars) at Bonhams forthcoming ‘Urban Art’ auction. REUTERS/Paul Hackett.

ArtDaily says: LONDON.- An original art work by the legendary street artist, Banksy, for a Greenpeace Save or Delete campaign photographic poster, is to be sold at Bonhams, New Bond Street, as part of its Urban Art sale on 11 January 2011. Estimated at £60,000 – 80,000, the unique piece (lot 67) was given to the vendor by the artist himself.

The art work was commissioned by Greenpeace to highlight the problems of global deforestation as part of their Save or Delete campaign. The image, which features some of the main characters from Disney’s The Jungle Book transposed onto a picture of a devastated forest, was intended for use on posters, billboards and postcards. While it was printed, it was never put into circulation because of the protectionist policies at Disney. A version of this poster is illustrated in Banksy’s Wall and Piece book.

It’s for a noble cause!

Nike Sportswear Spring 2011

Σε ένα διαφορετικό υπόδημα της Nike Sportswear, το minimal συναντά το κλασικό και…τα περιοδικά αφηγούνται την ιστορία! Ένα κολλάζ από ανακυκλωμένα περιοδικά αποτελεί το μοτίβο που κυριαρχεί και είναι μοναδικό για κάθε υπόδημα Nike Flash Macro Premium (καραβόπανο/ χρώμα σημύδας) και Nike Blazer Mid Premium (καραβόπανο/ χρώμα χακί) !!

Σε αυτό το project δεν έγινε κανένας συμβιβασμός όσον αφορά στη λειτουργικότητα. Η επιφάνεια έχει υποστεί επεξεργασία με διαφανές υλικό, το οποίο προσδίδει αντοχή και ανθεκτικότητα.

Θα τα βρείτε σε περιορισμένο αριθμό από την 1η Ιανουαρίου στην Ευρώπη, την Κίνα και σε επιλεγμένες αγορές.
