Art and Fashion
I had the great pleasure of meeting the RETNA himself in person for the first time at his studio right after his collaboration with Louis Vuitton in 2013. RETNA was one of three artists that were chosen to design a series of LV scarves for the “Street Art Collection.” And it just so happened that on that bright sunny day in downtown Los Angeles, I had one of those scarves in my car! He signed it and it now resides framed above a fireplace in my home. It truly is a perfect mix of Art and Fashion! After a tour of the studio, I spied one of my all time favorite pieces of art – a highly polished, chrome airplane wing that was painted with the signature Retna calligraphy. Stunning does not describe the piece where upon viewing for the first time… my body was engulfed in goose bumps and the world stopped – at that moment I became a fan for life. Mr. Lewis was also commissioned in 2011 to paint the tail wing of a VistaJet valued at $60 million US dollars. We personally own several RETNAS, including a surf board that was part of a charity collection and can be seen in the archives here on Fabulous365. Not only is RETNA a great talent… he is an amazing human being. One word describes the Man and his Art…. Fabulous.
