Jonathan Bartlett + Ralph Lauren: Art Wall Project
Jonathan Bartlett’s Art Wall Project has created a multimedia artistic experience for the Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply store at 99 University Place in New York. His featured work includes a 30’x80’ mural that wraps the exterior of the building, three large window installations, limited edition t-shirts to benefit the SVA MFA illustration scholarship fund, and individual works hanging throughout the store itself.
From Jon’s studio: “Three months ago Ralph Lauren commissioned me to work with their Denim & Supply store here and transform it into a world of my own - no prompt, all personal (so expect a lot of nature and a few bowler hats). The total package centers around a work of mysterious characters and metaphoric symbolism. It’s a 360˚ experience: all of the imagery relates - mural, windows, shirts… and eventually the online content.”
