Henzel Studio Heritage: ANDY WARHOL

TOM OF FINLAND

‘Henzel Studio Heritage: Tom of Finland’ bring some of  Tom of Finland’s (Touko Laaksonen) most iconic pieces to life. The range offers a new perspective on Tom of Finland’s works and their modernity, affirming the artist’s great relevance in art and design today. Henzel Studio Heritage: Tom of Finland launched at Colette in conjunction with Paris Art Fair.
“The collection is ultimately a testament to both the revolutionary vision of Tom of Finland and the extraordinary craftsmanship of Henzel Studio, which has miraculously captured the artist’s mastery of line, form, and shadow.”

ANDY WARHOL

For ‘Henzel Studio Heritage: Andy Warhol’, Andreasson (curator) identified and applied as basis for the collection a maquette Warhol created for an unrealized artists book. The handmade model consists of thirty-eight octagonal pages, each a die-cut detail from Warhol’s print edition set of Marilyn Monroe dated 1967 that includes ten variations of the iconic star. To expand on the maquette, the original Monroe portraits have been further deconstructed and appropriated by Calle Henzel. Henzel applied his signature design characteristic; freeform organic shapes, strategically placed holes, uneven punk-like fringes and elaborate surface treatments. The collection was launched at Webster in conjunction with Art Basel Miami Beach.
