A Bic Style "Red Flower" Sculpture by Royal Jarmon x Case Studyo
Even in these confusing times, we want to make sure we are putting a spotlight onto the small businesses we love around the world. Today, we wanted to give a shout out to the Belgian design studio, Case Studyo, and their release today, Thursday, March 19th, a bic lighter-esque sculpture by Royal Jarmon. In case you missed it, we did a studio visit with Jarmon last week.
Here is the breakdown: For his collaboration with Case Studyo, Royal zooms in on a recurring subject in his work; the BIC lighter. A seemingly banal object that holds a special place in the artist's heart, sparking fond memories of growing up on the family farm; from burning stuff as a young rascal to sneaking off to smoke his first cigarettes. The work is aptly titled 'the red flower', referencing Jungle Book and the term the animals used to describe the fire of civilization. In the landscape of modern art, Royal Jarmon is a rare beast, roaming free and offering his truly unique take on the world surrounding him.
