Keren Richter< /a> ilustration, textile design, and art direction. Inspiration and artwork from Berlin to Brooklyn.
and I are super excited to have recently completed a mural installation in collaboration with our favorite boutique,
. It was a crazy job. We could only work when the store was closed so I worked from 7pm to 4am for a week straight, all the while surrounded by Rodarte, Rachel Comey, and Band of Outsiders a few inches from my paintbrush.
(click here for a ton of photos of the project)
The mural features an abstracted city, comprised of various blocks which grow and tumble playfully along two opposing fifty foot walls. There are a variety of hand painted patterns inspired by some of this seasons prints (I threw a little Kenzo and Comey reference in the mix), some insider jokes (there is an ankh for my mom who is an egyptologist, some astrological elements, and textile designs from a variety of international sources.
