Famed for his luxurious and one-of-a-kind series of Lego sculptures ‘Little Love Stories’, which are built with Lego bricks reskinned in various metal finishes and then intricately hand-embellished with a myriad of sparkling Swarovski Crystals, the New York based artist Cimon ‘Cimon Art’ has now joined forces with renowned champagne house Perrier-Jouët and Status Luxury Group to contribute to Petra Nemcova’s Happy Hearts Fund charity for the Celebrate Your Status gala auction on Dec. 17th 2012. Notably, a 3-liter bottle of Perrier-Jouët’s Grand Brut and its wooden case has been personalized and intricately decorated by Cimon with crystal Swarovski Elements, with which the artist actually explores the dynamics of color and refracted light. This one-of-a-kind visually stunning bottle will be available for preview on Dec. 13th at the SWAROVSKI CRYSTALLIZED Concept Store in New York City, which is currently hosting the first public showcase of CIMON ART’s dazzling “Little Love Stories” Sculptures.
Besides featuring a gorgeous crystallized representation of the famous Perrier-Jouët’s anemore, the face of the wooden case also boasts motifs of teddy bear in fire orange crystals and a toy train engine in fire-red crystals, added by Cimon in honor of Happy Hearts Fund, a nonprofit organization dedicated to rebuilding schools and to restoring hope and opportunity in the lives of children after natural disasters around the world.
Further, Cimon has dotted the sides of the case with clear Swarovski Elements of varied sizes and shapes, which impressively gives a sense of celebration and the holiday spirit.
This visually stunning bottle boasts repeated flower motifs in clear petal crystals on the label, which is dotted with pale yellow crystals, while the bottle’s back has a clear crystal flower with a golden stem. Notably, Cimon has also etched his signature on the bottle to mark its uniqueness.
Now in its 2nd year, the Celebrate Your Status Gala produced by SLG will gather affluent individuals to raise $20,000 and 2,000 toys for HHF.
