Expanding its global Gucci ArtWalls project, Gucci is featuring its House DIY initiative, which celebrates the brand’s ethos of self-expression and personalization. Cities featuring the ArtWalls include Milan, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei, London and New York.

Milan – Largo la Foppa in Corso Garibaldi

Two featured works in Milan are inspired by the Gucci DIY knits, designed by Floridian artist Angela Deane. Her friendly ghosts are seen wearing personalized Gucci sweaters in a wintry backdrop. Deane hand paints old photographs for her creations.

London – off Brick Lane in East London

Louisiana-based painter Sarah Ashley Longshore—or Ashley Longshore, as she is better known—has taken over the London walls, where her artwork spotlights pop culture, American consumerism and Hollywood glamour. Her Gucci DIY ArtWall depicts a girl wearing oversized Gucci glasses in pink, red and yellow, as well as a green cable-knit sweater with the letter “R.”

Shanghai – Fengsheng Li in Jing’an District and Hong Kong – Lan Kwai Fong

American illustrator Jayde Fish has taken to both the Shanghai and Hong Kong ArtWalls. Prior to these, Fish’s work was featured in the Gucci Garden exhibit space in Florence, Italy, in the Summer 2017 collection, as well as a variety of products for sale exclusively at the Gucci Garden boutique. In her pieces, a customized Gucci Ophidia tote with the letter “J,” for her name, is imagined as a garden serving miniature-sized subjects, who are wearing Gucci, of course, with pet wild animals.

A Thailand-born illustrator named Phannapast Taychamaythakool worked with Gucci in the past on the House’s Le Marché des Merveilles jewelry collection in June of last year. Her work features the Ace Sneakers with her initials “P” and “T,” among multi-colored cosmos with dragons and bees, displaying the psychedelic, otherworldly style for which she has become known.
