In support of organizations that work to create safer and more sustainable environments for children, Kiehl’s continues its philanthropic tradition this holiday season.
Kiehl’s proudly announces its high-profile collaboration with New York Pop artist Kenny Scharf. Having raised $600,000 through previous global holiday initiatives, Kiehl’s invited Scharf to design its 4th Annual Limited Edition Creme de Corps Holiday Collection, with 100% of proceeds to benefit over 40 children’s causes around the world. In the United States, 100% of net profits will support RxArt, a non-profit national organization, committed to fostering artistic expression and awareness through the challenging, yet rewarding task of engaging young patients through contemporary art in pediatric hospitals.
Best known for his paintings, performances and installations that incorporate pop and comic imagery in evocative and nuanced reconfigurations, Kenny Scharf is a pop surrealist art legend. Scharf burst onto New York’s eclectic East Village art scene in the early 1980s and joined the likes of Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. The sole living master amongst a group of artist elite, Scharf continues to produce his instantly recognizable “creatures” on renowned building facades and low-key urban surfaces with the playful Pop aesthetic that has distinguished him internationally. Regardless of location, Scharf’s work remains public, accessible and brilliant.
Scharf’s newest, unconventional medium is Kiehl’s 4th Annual Limited Edition Creme de Corps Holiday Collection featuring his vibrant work Globo Mundo. Created for Kiehl’s, Scharf describes Globo Mundo as “representing the whole world or globe; inspired by Kiehl’s, its patrons and their work in communities around the world.”
“Kiehl’s is providing a vehicle to share my beliefs, bringing attention to worthwhile causes around the world. Collaborating with Kiehl’s to benefit children’s charities is a dream come true. It is also extremely gratifying to know that this project will affect young men and women in over 40 countries worldwide. Together, we are making a difference one bottle of Creme de Corps at a time.” shares Kenny Scharf. Of RxArt, he says, “The work they do is inspiring. I’m flattered to be in the company of their existing list of creative partners.”
