HENZEL STUDIO COLLABORATIONS / HERITAGE ART PILLOWS: EXCLUSIVE STOREFRONT ON PADDLE8
HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to announce a online storefront on the World’s leading online auction site Paddle8, featuring a collection of art pillows designed in collaboration with contemporary artists ASSUME VIVID ASTRO FOCUS, SCOTT CAMPBELL, ROBERT KNOKE, HELMUT LANG, MARILYN MINTER, RICHARD PHILLIPS, JACK PIERSON, CALLE HENZEL and ANSELM REYLE, as well as in collaboration with the Foundations of ANDY WARHOL and TOM OF FINLAND.

The HENZEL STUDIO Storefront on PADDLE8 will also exclusively debut new pillow designs by artists ASHLEY BICKERTON, OLAF BREUNING, BJARNE MELGAARD and ANSELM REYLE.

All groundbreaking and leading forces within their respective fields and media, their mark has not only been honored and highlighted at leading galleries and institutions worldwide, but also widely documented and manifested as a mirror of cultural movements. Each artist was invited to produce numerous designs, and to freely create and translate works into the media at hand: digital print on canvas, encompassing works across photography, mixed media montages, drawings, paintings, collages and relief sculptures. The creative brief allowed the artists to embrace the outcome as part of their body of work and create designs that complement their artistic practice. For example, Anselm Reyle chose to expand on his celebrated foil paintings, which thrive on being reproduced and gain further purpose once multiplied. The art collective assume vivid astro focus created a series of artworks titled BUTT PILLOWS as offspring of their 2013 exhibition alisabel viril apagão fenomenal at Casa Triângulo in São Paulo, a visual commentar on the reckless real estate development taking place in the city. Juergen Teller selected photographs he took of floor to ceiling wall montages representing his body of work as featured in his exhibition WOO! at Intitute of Contemporary Art in London in 2013, which once translated onto the pillows have a dynamic collage effect.

Henzel Studio Art Pillows is a category that will continuously be expanded upon in parallel with their contemporary art rug program.
