World-renowned artist and designer Kaffe Fassett unveils new exhibition
THE WORLD OF KAFFE FASSETT
Thursday 5th September – Sunday 13th October
Anthropologie is excited to announce for this year’s London Design Festival we will be collaborating with world-renowned artist and designer Kaffe Fassett on a new exhibition.
Kaffe will transform King’s Road Gallery into ‘The World of Kaffe Fassett’ using his instinctive, playful and organic use of colour and print.
The show will include new and exclusive pieces as well as treasures from the past. Expect patchwork, knitting, textiles, mosaics and paintings, as well as his needlepoint cushion kits.
“My dream is to turn the space into a jewel box of colour from the softest pastels to deep saturated hues of scarlets, teals, blues and magentas.
King’s Road will light up with a kaleidoscope of pattern and colours, while cushions, scarves, throws and quilts will add a touch of rich magic to kick interiors to life.”
ABOUT KAFFE FASSETT
Kaffe has dedicated the last 50 year s of his life to the world of knitting, needle point and patchwork, promoting these crafts through his own work and encouraging other s to find their own creativity. He has produced over 30 publications from how-to books to odes to colour, as well as touring internationally giving workshops, lectures and museum exhibitions.
Kaffe started as a fine artist, winning a scholarship to study at The Boston School of Museum of Fine Arts when he was nineteen.
After settling in England in 1964, his passion for colour led him to knitting and designing for esteemed names such as Missoni and Bill Gibb. His hand-knitted garments also feature in museum collections all over the world.
Kaffe has participated in many exhibitions over the year s and in 1988, he became the first living textile artist to have a one-man show as the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
