Miró x Octaevo
Grand Palais museum in Paris
When the Grand Palais museum in Paris contacted us to design a limited collection of products for their upcoming Miró retrospective, we couldn't have been more excited. Bringing together nearly 150 works, the retrospective traced the technical and stylistic evolution of the Catalan artist. Using original artwork of one our our favourite artists has been a dream come true. Earning international acclaim, Miró's work has been interpreted as Surrealism, a sandbox for the subconscious mind and a re-creation of the childlike. In numerous interviews, Miró expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeois society, and declared an "assassination of painting" in favour of upsetting the visual elements of established painting.
