An original freehand illustrated shopping bag from one of the most renowned department stores in the world. This plain piece of paper paraphernalia was the perfect canvas for Wolski and his black ink to be let loose upon. Created as an exclusive and complementing piece for the 50 Windows of Creativity auction as an extension of his Harvey Nics installation.
Signature minutiae drawn straight onto this iconic accessory, combining luxury with fine art which has always been at the forefront and this is no exception.

An easy and obvious marriage which is sure to be a hit - a small piece of monochromatic magic from a time when we were not physically able to go shopping yet we could go to a shop and view a piece of artwork.
