This painting features a rare vintage Gianni Versace tie attached to the front. The colors from the tie blend with the bold colors painted on the canvas to become one with each other. "This is a particularly rare tie because it actually says the Versace name on the front," explains artist Gregory Brown. "Gianni didn't do that too much." The Versace label is attached to the back of the canvas.
Part of Gregory Brown's signature series of abstract paintings created around vintage, "pre-death" Gianni Versace ties. Gregory starts a painting by selecting a tie from his continually changing collection. He says "it comes down to if I'm in a conservative mood or a bright mood! And what people don't know is that Gianni created an IMMENSE collection with varying color schemes from 1990 to 1997."
Artist Gregory Brown melds Verscace ties with dynamic geometric patterns. Gregory emphasizes the art in fashion by breathing a new life in late Gianni Versace's work. With a collection of vintage Versace ties, Gregory expands the creative vision on canvas by spotlighting each Versace piece. "The glamour in fashion ended with Gianni's death in 1997, I wanted to find a way to keep his collection alive," states Gregory. In his free time, Gregory enjoys traveling across Europe, reading historical stories, and being an avid runner. His dynamic artwork has been displayed in American Airlines Admirals Clubs in both Miami and Chicago, the World Trade Center in Dallas, and shown at exhibits in Jerusalem and Paris.
