BD Art Editions – Postcraft
Limited edition serie of 8 unique pieces + 2 prototype + 2 artist proof.
This collection is the artist’s interpretation of pre, during and post-oil eras that have defined the Middle East, creating a bridge between the three historical periods. Each era’s impact on the other is expressed through the the fluidity and transitional qualities of the vases. Each period is represented by the distinct textures of each vase. A raw and earthy coral effect symbolises the time before oil was discovered; a luxurious gold foil façade bears testimony to the wealth and prosperity that came with its’discover; the post-oil world, driven by technology and sustainability, is shown through glossy metallic. Each piece of work has journeyed through time, and has a story to tell.
24K gold plated enamelled ceramic vase, platinium and beige engobe.
19 x 18 x 40 h. cm

Although born and trained in Madrid, he was forged as a designer with Fabrica, the breeding ground of creativity run by Benetton near the Italian city of Treviso, where he arrived in 1997, when he had barely turned 24, to work under Oliviero Toscani, who would soon put him in charge of the design department. It was at Fabrica that he first worked with BD on the Mail Me project.
A company that has always attributed such great importance to the author of the designs could never forget the great figures in history. That is why the BD catalogue of contemporary creations has always included those by admired classical masters.
A sheep with a drawer in its stomach, a chair that wears heels, these truly surreal works of art could only come from the mind of Salvador Dalí. Pioneering, avant-garde provocateur, Surrealist, as famous for his personality as his work, a true icon, his legacy remains unrivalled in the current century.
