ArtWalls by Gucci in Milan, New York, London, Shanghai and Hong Kong now feature Décor illustrations realised by British artist Alex Merry. Merry developed imagery for the debut of Gucci Décor in 2017. This “special relationship” continues with the creation of illustrations depicting new styles and pieces.
Perfectly embodying Merry’s signature aesthetic, the new ArtWalls display scented candles in porcelain jars, vases with snakes for handles, porcelain tableware produced by Manifattura Richard Ginori featuring the Herbarium print, as well as sumptuous cushions showcasing the GG pattern in silk jacquard or animal motifs.
The ArtWall in New York was executed by Colossal Media and is located on Lafayette Street in Manhattan’s SoHo neighbourhood. In Milan and London, the new ArtWalls were executed by the European leader in out-of-home advertising, Urban Vision. The Milan ArtWall is located at Largo la Foppa in the district of Corso Garibaldi while the London one is just off East London’s famous Brick Lane. The Hong Kong installation is on D’Aguilar Street, in Lan Kwai Fong, while the Shanghai mural is located in Fengsheng Li, Jingan district.
