Dream Beyond Art And Fashion - Jeans For Refugees
Jeans donated by Alicia Vikander, Bryan Adams, Carla Bruni, Hrithik Roshan, Melanie C, Salma Hayek, Vivienne Westwood and more are now available for a limited time only at SiOTT Gallery.
With the support of more than 100 celebrities, internationally acclaimed artist and designer, Johny Dar, has put his artistic talents to work raising funds for the International Rescue Committee (rescue.org).
Born out of the artist’s dream, Jeans for Refugees has grown into a global art project in less than a year. Started by Johny Dar, the initiative inspired 101 celebrities to donate their jeans to the cause. The artist painted each of the 101 pairs of denim by hand, applying a range of colors in his recognizable abstract style and creating a one-of-a-kind collection of wearable art. Seeing jeans as perhaps the most democratic of all garments, the artist puts an emphasis on equality and blurs the line between celebrities and the anonymous. A world traveler himself, Dar strives to connect people of the Earth in a manner of JR or Banksy, praising humanity above all other qualities.
Therefore, every pair of jeans painted by Johny Dar is more than a unique haute couture piece - it is a symbol of a greater fight for equal chances for all in a borderless world.
