New York Fashion Pieces for Liberty London

Boyarde recently painted some fabulous designs for Liberty’s managing director, Ed Burstell, and Liberty Womenswear buyer, Rhian Grimstead. These fabulous Liberty iconic Iphis print bags were proudly strutted in New York fashion week!

Ed Burstell is a New Yorker in London, so Boyarde wanted to play on the Big Apple theme for his piece. What better than Magritte’s ‘Son of man’  with a little Boyarde mischievousness;) The Liberty tote design for Rhian features Boyarde’s signature Diva based on classic Hollywood glamour diva’s from the 40s and 50s. This blonde bombshell really stands out against the purple iphis print! We are in love with this Liberty Marlbourough Tote bag! Here are some snaps for you.

Iron Man Guards the Money!!

Another classic Marvel character! A client wanted something special for her husband. Who better to guard your money, than Iron Man! A challenging commission for an artist, as it is very complex to paint such a small image, and involves the most minuscule of brushes! Great final product though, and very happy client. :):)

Lichtenstein Mash up!

Irony upon Irony here! Taking the iconic Lichtenstein image, known for contextualising the everyday by placing it in a gallery to create a new narrative on gender stereotyping. Here Boyarde has taken his piece and flipped the gender stereotype even further by giving her the famous Alpha Male quote from Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men! ‘I wan’t the truth!’ ‘You can’t Handle the Truth!!!

One off hand painted Charlotte Olympia Pop Art Dolly’s for charity!

It has been 3 year since I painted 100 pairs of limited edition Charlotte Olympia Dolly’s for Art Basel in 2012!  It was a wonderful to reminisce last week when I painted a one off pair of Pop art Lichtenstein Dolly’s for a Bedales charity auction.

The shoes are of particular importance to me as It was my painted Dolly’s that got the attention of the fashion world, where upon i decided to embrace my new fashion audience and expand my artistic canvases from not only hand painted body art, to fashion accessories.

Here are some snaps of the finished product taken on the rooftop of my new studio!Charlotte Olympia Pop Art Dollys revisit 2015  logo 4Charlotte Olympia Pop Art Dollys revisit 2015 1Charlotte Olympia Pop Art Dollys revisit 2015 logo 5Charlotte Olympia Pop Art Dollys revisit 2015 logo 3


Here are some pictures from the original 100 pairs that i painted for Neiman Marcus / Charlotte Olympia, Art Basel Miami 2012….

Forest Gump meets Damien Hirst, meets Hershey kisses!

I have been a busy artist this week painting one of my favourite designs to date. Inspired by Damien Hirst’s famous skull, Ian Davenport”s striking stripes, and Forest Gump’s iconic quote, ” Life is like a box of chocolate’s, you never know what you’re gonna get.” This quote is exaggerated by the scattering of Hershey’s kisses on the reverse design. These influences combine perfectly to create this fun, and visually spectacular design!

Here is the result, photographed using the inspiring sites of my new studio in the Bussey Building! The brilliant green wall mural compliments this fabulous design perfectly!

Here is a making of the bag montage, form start to finish, with a close up of the Damien Hirst inspired skull. What a fabulous final result!

If you have any fabulous design ideas you think would translate well on to a bag, in Boyarde’s unique style, please contact us ..

The iconic Marilyn Monroe on a Birkin! “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend!”

Marilyn was, and remains to be, one of the most iconic women in the world. Boyarde repeatedly goes back to her for inspiration for her designs! What better than to bling her up with some diamonds and pair the image with the famous quote “Diamond’s are a girls Best friend!” The red lips really make this monochrome image pop!
