Parisian visual artist André Saraiva sent us a postcard to celebrate his collaboration with Louis Vuitton on the Spring Summer scarves collection.
For this new collaboration with Louis Vuitton André Saraiva used his studio drop cloth as the inspiration for the background of his interpretation of the House’s Monogram shawl. Once he had translated his paint spatters to the luxurious silk and wool wrap, it became a natural habitat for ‘Mr. A’, the artist’s signature character with asymmetrical eyes, who inhabits the walls and art galleries of Paris as well as many other international cities.
Born in 1971, he considered from a very young age that the walls belonged to him. « When I arrived in Paris in 1981, it was obvious to me that the street would become my school, my studio. Graffiti is a way of challenging the domination of the City on individuals, a way to own it ».
André Saraiva lives and works between Paris, New York and Los Angeles and is currently the Creative Director of French magazine L'Officiel Hommes. His artworks are presented in galleries across the world, from Paris to New York, Saint-Tropez, Stockholm, Los Angeles and Tokyo.

This spring, Louis Vuitton continues its world tour of the vibrant street art scene by inviting three new artists from three different continents to collaborate on its collections of scarves.
Californian artist Kenny Scharf is a remarkable figure of New York early eighties’ art scene in the fields of painting, sculpture, and performance, alongside iconic artists like Keith Haring. Pursuing his on-going process of connecting fine arts and pop culture, he has covered Louis Vuitton’s giant silk crepe square with a colourful collage of astronomic motifs and symbols on a blurred psychedelic background.

True to his name, derived from the Inca sun god, INTI is inspired by ancestral Andean culture, which he transcribes in brightly coloured, monumental works. He revisits the giant square with a sun motif Infused with warm shades of gold and orange, referencing the image of ‘Wiracocha’, god of TIWANAKU culture.
