James Goldcrown Creates Mural for Rag & Bone Capsule Collection
Yesterday, W&C's own Jessica Alice braved the NYC cold to attend local artist James Goldcrown's live painting for his collaboration with Rag & Bone x Neiman Marcus. Known for his 'Lovewall' mural here in NYC, Goldcrown was tapped to create a special capsule t-shirt line and mural for the clothing brand at the Rag & Bone location on East Houston & Elizabeth Street. The mural reflects unity, love and equality, and our planet earth.
"I feel very strongly about today's current affairs, one of them being how we are destroying the planet. This mural is a message about how we have to come together first so that we treat each other equally...then only can we protect our planet," says Goldcrown.
James Goldcrown is a self-taught artist/photographer based in New York. In 2007, he moved to New York and re-entered the fashion world. He began incorporating mixed media into his photography influenced by his previous days as a street artist in the early 90's. In 2014, Goldcrown started a workshop called The Shed Project which allowed people to interact in his studio space. The following year, he had his first show at Miami Basel where his work sold out in 2 hours.

The Lovewall has led him to work with brands and companies such as, Toms, L'Oreal, Island Records, Universal, MTV, Vogue, Bandier, Rimowa Luggage, Henri Bendel, Armani and many more. His work is also sold privately around the world.
