Spring is in the air on Fifth Avenue. Van Cleef & Arpels and French artist Alexandre Benjamin Navet partnered to create fifteen colorful sculptures inspired by the artists’ sketches. New Yorkers will find the installations along Fifth Avenue from 47th to 59th Streets, and will be on view from May 1st to May 31st.
Colorful installation may take the form of arches, benches, pergolas and more. Alexandre Benjamin Navet is a multidisciplinary artist and art director, currently living in Paris, France.
His client list, too long to print, includes such favorites as not only Van Cleef & Arpels, but also Hermes, Cartier, Baccarat, Harrod’s to name just a few.
