I’m sure you remember this huge Prada Marfa painting at the Van der Woodsen’s. This poster could be considered as a member of the Gossip Girl’s cast, right? Hanging this piece of art in your living room would be like having a slice of the Upper East Side in your own home.
But what’s the story behind this design? I’ve made my own research…
According to the Wikipedia, the artists Elmgreen and Dragset created an installation designed to resemble a Prada Store and put it in the middle of nowhere (aka 26 miles northwest of the city of Marfa). And it’s still there. The Prada Marfa poster is the road sign that tells you the store is 1837 miles ahead. Brilliant and sublime.
Of course, I’ve also found out where to buy this poster.
