Oh, the crazy cool things I find totally by accident that end up on this blog! It was a bright red neon sign, spotted way in the back of a newish indoor shopping emporium on Broadway in Soho that drew me in from the street and, look at this awesome chair that I discovered! Just look at it!
As part of a custom commission for which he was given complete artistic control, artist Noel (Instagram @Noel_Painted_That) has created this vibrant and utterly delightful collage of famous carton characters which will eventually cover all surfaces of an Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair (is it an original or a knock off? Who knows).
While I recognized popular characters such as Betty Boop, Scooby Doo, Goofy, Toucan Sam and SpongeBob, Noel admitted that he is having fun with this project, creating mash-ups and taking artist liberties with some characters to totally make over the piece in his own style. I think it looks fantastic!
Noel also custom paints T-Shirts and Hats and even objects such as Guitars. If you’re local, you can visit him in the store, or find him on Instagram at @Noel_Painted_That.
