When Street Art invests the Table Arts

The Mauviel brand of kitchen utensils has given carte blanche to a dozen artists in order to create unique and original objects, all sold for a good cause. For the second edition of the M’Cook Art project, Mauviel, a high-end cooking utensils company created in 1830, offered a dozen artists the opportunity to work, transform, dress, cut, weld or paint the utensil of their choice. Their only limits being their imagination and the theme « The 7 deadly sins – the gluttony ». Among the artists who attended, Hadrien Durand-Baïssas is a young graphic designer passionate about web design and video. He gave free rein to his fine and precise line to create an imaginary animal made of interlacing and stylized figures, engraved on a tray. The painter Yann Sciberras also participated in this project. He approaches art as a snapshot of real life, current events, our way of life, our anxieties and fantasies. He thus printed his art on a plate using graffiti representing slogans, words, images responding to his perception of what surrounds him. These everyday objects transformed into works of art will be auctioned at a sale to be held at the Pavillon Ledoyen in Paris on September 11. The profits from the sale will be entirely donated to the « Toutes à l’école » association, which works in Cambodia to develop the schooling of underprivileged girls and adolescents. The first edition of M’Cook Art raised more than 13,000 euros, a sum that was used to cover part of the needs of Happy Chandara’s schoolgirls. In September 2013, 100 more girls than the previous year were entering this establishment. An original, humane and supportive initiative. All we wish them is an even greater success than in the first edition. Brand website: www.mauviel.com Auction sale on September 11 at Pavillon Ledoyen, 1 avenue Dutuit, 75008 Paris.
