Calling all creatives
In 2019 Furious Goose launched our first ‘Guest Artist’ collaboration with Goldsmiths MFA painter Taylor Bystrom. The collection of pocket squares and scarves is totally stunning. You can see them here. Dreamy, right?!
Taylor’s psychedelic pop-art was a perfect fit for our bold signature style. They tell his story that is deeply personal and sometimes painful, with a dark sense of humour and a sense of exuberance and attitude.
The project was truly collaborative. Taylor’s paintings (of all different shapes and sizes) were extended in the Furious Goose studio to create square scarf designs, with decorative frames added seamlessly to the original paintings.
All that was required was high quality and high resolution photographs of the originals. The results are spectacular. The print picks up the intense colours and even metallic finish of the paint. Taylor has been able to weave the resulting silk squares and related photoshoot images back into his degree show at Goldsmiths. Plus he received a full set of pocket squares and silk neckerchiefs worth £1,250.
We are now seeking a guest artist to create a capsule collection wwith in 2020.
So, if you are a creative with a strong point of view and a story to tell please get in touch. You could be a painter, sculptor or illustrator. Or even a dancer or poet. Hell, you might even be an architect, flower arranger or a tattooist!
