Where the wild things are
World famous for their fantastical creations from wearable masks and gold plated furniture to biomorphic sculptures twins Nikolai and Simon, better known as the Haas Brothers, have been making things together ever since they were Fake Louis Vuitton Replica Bags young. Growing up in Austin, Texas, they recall trying to sell toys (through a store) when they were about 13 years old, and dabbling in music in their early 20s, before setting up a studio in Los Angeles in 2010. Their celebrity clients include brands like Versace, Louis Vuitton, singer Lady Gaga and actor Tobey Maguire.
Recognising their passion and originality, Donatella Versace, the vice president of replica louis vuitton bags from china the group, commissioned them for several lines of home dcor. “We and Versace both love shiny, we both love fine, we both love ostentatious,” Simon frankly admits replica louis vuitton bags from china , adding that for Versace Home’s cheap louis vuitton bags from china capsule collection, a curated line of 12 pieces, from hundreds of sketches, was the cream of the crop.
A fantastical worldGrowing up, the 1:1 replica handbags environment in their home was synaesthetic, one exploration spurring another, dance and music a part of everything. Their mother was an opera singer and their father a sculptor, who taught them stone carving. Watching their actor brother, Lukas, mimicking people was a daily practice. The drama in their work is natural, notes Simon, as they see every object as an animated spirit.
“Our mother’s way of speaking and telling stories is nearly operatic. We approach objects and pictures in the same way knowing that the process of building itself can be performative, applied in a kind of choreography,” he explains, while Nikolai adds, “Our mother not only sang and acted in opera, but also wrote for shows replica louis vuitton like Seinfeld and The Cosby Show. In a sense, Simon and I are ‘writing scripts’ with stone, bronze, ceramic and other physical mediums.”
Their style of working together has nurtured immense possibilities. “Each of us often comes up with a bit of inspiration that the other takes and brings to fruition. Our dynamic allows pieces that are both alive and technically unusual to be created organically in our studio,” shares Simon.
Creativity, fake designer bags on repeatAt Haas, there is no template for the heart’s desires. “The most valuable thing in our studio fake louis bag is our outlook. I personally feel little to no inhibition when it comes to creative output, a product of the immense support we felt as children,” Nikolai emphasises. In fact, Simon’s urge to experiment is tenable. “Even when I look at a plant I wonder how to make it”
One night, he sat repeatedly brushing very wet clay on high quality replica handbags china to a clay surface, hundreds of times, getting an unexpected texture. “By morning, a very unusual texture formed on the surface of the clay pot,” says Simon, whose discovery led to Accretions. Likewise, they found Apoxie Sculpt, a special clay ideal for making signature forms, like their lily pad type table edges, knock knee anthropomorphic legs and waved top surfaces.
Simon, who appreciates humour in painting, says, “David Hockney, Philip Guston and Keith Haring all have a sweetness or funniness about them. So why not with things in everyday life?” For a client with a flock of Lalanne sheep, who desired an ‘Alpha Male big black sheep’ in the flock, a large daybed with horns was their solution.
Animal loveR Company, New York, represents the brothers. At their LA studio, Nikolai and Simon attract some lovely people smart, curious and generous leading to great collaborative work. On a trip to Cape Town, Africa, for a GUILD design fair in 2014, Simon and Nikolai came across a group of women working with beads, called Design Indaba. “We were really excited by their radical beaded animals and thought our own anthropomorphic style would marry with their aesthetic beautifully,” says Simon.
Afreaks is the line of sculptural furniture they created jointly, also paying homage to Demon Fuzz’s record, Afreaka. “The result of our collaboration is one of the most fulfilling, life changing and productive projects of my life. We all became very close dolabuy.su , like family, and the women call themselves The Haas Sisters,” says Nikolai.
Simon’s new body of work takes inspiration from mandalas and also the Kama Sutra relief sculptures of India. To truly understand a culture and its greatest artistic strengths, one must visit its land, feels Nikolai, adding that he would love to come to India. Perhaps, the mantra to their success is in his observation, “If you can engage a viewer of any art form in a story, you quickly get them to think like you, creating a universal experience that lots of people can feel at the same time.”Dear reader,
