Restoration Hardware’s Graffiti Art

I was shopping at Restoration Hardware on Fifth Avenue the other day, and was struck by the enormous graffiti installation on the wall of the store. Sized at 12′ x 25′, the installation is a collaboration by artists CMENTONE and GE-OLOGY, and showcases a quote by Restoration Hardware Chairman and Co-CEO Gary Friedman. The quote, also the title of the work, is “Endless Reflection,” and is meant to reflect the company’s vision and beliefs. In their first-ever collaboration, the artists used a combination of script styles, mixed materials, and bold Japanese Sume-inked tags to create a multi-layered background highlighting Friedman’s expression. Apologies for the unimpressive camera phone picture, but if you are in the area, it is worth a trip to see in person. I wish these two would collaborate on designing the walls of my apartment!
