British artist, designer and pro-skater Blondey McCoy has created three hand-painted murals in Manhattan exclusively for Burberry. Inspired by the dichotomy of modern life and the traditions of the holiday season, with strong references to Burberry and British culture, the new murals are Blondey’s largest artwork to date.
“Blondey is an extraordinary talent and I am blown away by the incredible artworks he has created for us in New York. The passion, energy and skill that go into everything he does are remarkable and his approach to design, from inception to the techniques he uses to bring them to life, transcends his years…He truly is one in a million, and I am so proud to be collaborating with him on this very special project.” – Christopher Bailey
“Christopher and I have kept in constant contact since our first mural in Clerkenwell, whose short but sweet lifespan only made it more pressing that we work together again. We decided to do three more, centred around the holiday season in New York, which is quite fitting as my favourite Christmas song is “Fairytale of New York”. Over the last couple of years I have been collecting antiques and objects, some more sentimental than others, and incorporating these into my works. These new murals are a composition, a curation of some of these objects that sit aside references to Burberry and British culture.” – Blondey McCoy
