Warhol kites

LH kites at Palm Springs Art Museum

Sometimes that life of making kites takes you to unexpected and marvelous places. This is one of our all time favourites.

Our beloved friend Sebastien Clarke was invited to do a kite show at the Art Event 2018 gala on Palm Springs Art Museum, we were comisioned to make the kites for the event.

What a priviledge being able to work with such amazing artwork, what a priviledge to have Sebastien (one of the world’s most reputated kite fliers and a star on Cirque du Soleil’s Toruk show …) fly them.

Warhol banana made into a quad kite is one of the most amazing kites we’ve been involved, we printed the fabric and Sebastien did the manufacturing, chapeau my friend!

We let you enjoy some images of the event so you can have a little taste of how it went … jealous we couldn’t be there!
