The MoCollection celebrates those artists who stand out for their exceptional contribution to art and culture and their iconic creations such as; Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst and Keith Haring.
What makes an artist great? It takes talent, of course, and an innovative mind. Also, having some sort of vision helps. But a truly great artist is distinguished by the unique ability to take his or her moment in time and distill its essence so that resulting work becomes timeless.
All of these artists were inspired by each other. Banksy saw Basquiat’s and Haring’s work in the subways in New York, and Basquiat’s talent was discovered by Warhol. They, in their turn, have inspired many more artists all around the world. Their work has had a huge impact on the world and the street art scene, and has also made its way into homes and museums worldwide, demonstrating the enduring importance of these artists.
Also well known brands like Dior, Louis Vuitton, H&M, Uniqlo and Disney collaborated with these artists. This shows their relevance in our current society.
