The limited edition Pink Bear scarf “Recollection Of Innocence” created to raise money for disadvantage street children, has sold out
I created a Pink Bear mural for Skog42 (an upmarket fashion boutique) three years ago, and I was recently approached by them again about a charity fashion concept. The proposed concept was to turn the mural I created into a limited edition luxury art scarf, with proceeds from the sales going to projects which help disadvantaged street children, “street art for street kids”. I loved the idea so I was onboard with absolutely no hesitation.
We worked with Mala & Mad to create the scarves as the concept was their brain child. They were inspired to help after a trip to Nepal where they saw many children in need of basic support. “Together with local team members we visit and support orphanages and children's villages. It is about the basic supply, food and clothing for street children, their accommodation and protection as well as the chance of education and ‘help for self-help”.
The scarf was launched at the annual street festival in Karlsruhe “Festival of the Southern Forest Road”. The Pink Bear hung out in the window for the evening as a real life mannequin promoting the scarf, whilst also seducing customers to come in and buy one. Whilst the festival was in full swing, a large projection of the mural being created was shown on the street. It was a great night and we sold the majority of the scarves that evening which is fantastic.
There are a few Artist Proof signed scarves still available, so if you would like to buy one of these please do get in touch.
