Fall/Winter New Introductions Presentation
Unveiling of the fall/winter introductions, including the new addition to The Guest collection. Lladró´s most iconic character, designed by Jaime Hayon, is now interpreted by a new artist, Guillaume Grando aka Supakitch. Supakitch started out as a graffiti artist in the nineties and, since then, the fluidity called for by graffiti has been instrumental in shaping the sinuous brushstroke of his work. His creative projects focus on gesture, movement, liquid material, color and the reflections of light. Elements masterfully rendered in the new versions of The Guest he has created for Lladró. Supakitch champions a simple style in which elements are combined to trap the beholder and transmit a feeling of almost being submerged in his works. Porcelain and, particularly, the use of faded pearly lusters have proven ideal for reproducing this same watery effect in which the reflection of light conveys a sense of movement and depth. The end result is reinforced by the volume of the waves covering the surface of the pieces. This New York based artist, who also creates works together with his wife Koralie besides his own individual practice, is already a force to be reckoned with in the art world.
