ArtSugar donating to Guiding Eyes for the Blind all August and Michael Turchin Social Media Takeover!
ArtSugar has not been around very long, but I have already had the immense opportunity to work with an incredible artist based in Kiev - Anna Panchenko's limited edition prints are sold on artsugar.co - they are provocative, edgy, fun and gorgeous - and mostly focused on her own mouth holding an object - from food, to coins, to now... stones. Taken to her imagery, my friend and notable jewelry gal Stephanie Gottlieb had a brilliant idea to commission Anna to hold a diamond in her mouth. Anna accepted the task, and we commissioned her to create Shine Bright Like a Diamond. I purchased a 50 mm Swarovski crystal and shipped it to Kiev. I had never shipped to Ukraine before! When Anna, who is usually the model for her own work, received the stone - she said to me - this is simply too big for my mouth - I will get you a model with a bigger mouth! And she did. Anna began photographing promptly and soon thereafter, Anna, Stephanie and I finalized this super glam image (and just in time for the holidays!).
I am excited to offer limited edition prints of Shine Bright Like a Diamond to you through ArtSugar in collaboration with Stephanie. It comes in three sizes - framed or unframed. Now through December 21st, use code Holiday at checkout for 15% off of anything on the site. Happy shopping :)
