I love that art can exist in so many different mediums. A star-spangled-metallic-foil-like confetti display is no exception. When it comes to sparkle I’m like a magpie trying to snatch a partner, my eyes are instantly drawn.
New York based confetti artists, Nicholas Andersen and Julie Ho developed a friendship through their love for craft of all kinds; working with tissue paper, cardboard and silk to build objects that form a focal point. There’s something so intriguing about the painstaking repetition and time involved in their confetti designs. I’ve been buzzing about these guys lately because they’ve recently been in Australia working on the Regent Theatre’s production of King Kong.
The fashion industry adores them, and for what is still a relatively niche idea, they have managed to lure the big brands like Lanvin, Mercedes Benz and J.Crew to their work. Their confetti designs have appeared in the pages in Pop magazine and The New York Times amongst others, decorated sets for Beyonce and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and have added excitement to in-store displays and store windows for Opening Ceremony, Le Bon Marche and Lane Crawford- filling spaces and turning them into a textured shiny wonderland, adding fun and an almost nostalgic air to the interiors. Their work reminds me of the ultimate pinãta party!Source and Images via: confettisystem.com
