Operation Design- Graffiti
I never thought the day would come where graffiti would be regarded and appreciated as a form of art. Operation Design is a non-for-profit organization created three years ago by a group of professionals in NYC making that idea possible. Their mission: for NYC students to find inspiration & motivation in their daily work as aspiring artists. Their latest creation, is a collection of iconic Eames® Molded Plywood Chairs as re-imagined by 20 prominent graffiti and street artists including Billi Kid and Blanco will be up for live auction beginning May 11 through June 1st (bidding starts at $1,000). To drive traffic to the auction, Barneys will display the one-of-a-kind limited edition collection in the windows of Barneys New York. Check out the next page for another preview of an amazing work of art. Can you picture this type of art in your home?
