For our special Art Basel project this year we hooked up with our awesome and talented friend Brandon Koppel and ST.ART Initiative.
ST.ART Initiative is a consumer electronics company specializing in exclusive wearable art by creatively utilizing limited run artist designed works from the most talented artists and brands in the world. Partial proceeds of each limited run artist/brand designed case will be donated to charity.
The Installation was part of their launch at Basel along with an extremely limited line of iphone cases. Their first run consisted of cases from Greg Mike, L'Amour Supreme, Nosego, Madsteez and The Overthrow. You can purchase on http://startinitiative.com/
We executed this mega iPhone with digital renderings, CNC milling, hand sculpting and fine finishing work for a pristine paintable surface. (Peep some process shots below!)
The Basel Castle event was blowing up and Buff was able to get enough painting in before the rain started, but no worries... he finished up the next day.
The finished piece just arrived back to our shop for a high gloss coating and will be for sale!! Stay tuned...
Thanks again to Brandon, Joe, Nils, Rooster, Buff Monster, and everyone involved. We can't wait to work on future projects.
