Teaming with fashion label Moncler, British artist Stuart Semple has taken a few of the companies logo Ducks (in 160cm fiberglass form) and decorated them. They’ll be unveiled during Art Basel Miami Beach, and then will tour Moncler flagship stores before being auction in February. Proceeds of the auction will benefit The Child Priority Foundation.
Looking purely at the base model for the project, it is worth noting a similarity to the public art/statue campaigns led by New York and Chicago with the Art Cows. Same general idea, same general intent. Just a specter of exclusivity thrown on top. (Via This.Hearts.On.Fire).
