ART BY FRIENDS x OPINEL

After the success of the Odyssée Tour in 2014 and 2015, Art By Friends invites thirty artists to work on a new material: the Opinel knife.

This challenge ends in January 2015 with an exhibition in Annecy presenting thirty original pieces made from different techniques such as painting, collage, sculpting, drawing, stencil, pyrography.

It is the beginning of the Opinel series. Artists from all over the world will gradually join the adventure. An unusual and original collection is created from those artistic meetings with the goal of producing 200 pieces. Between 2016 and 2017 the touring exhibition will take place in Annecy, Brussels, Bayreuth, Montreal, Geneva, Vicenza, Brooklyn and Lyon.

Covered with glitter, changed into a barbers comb, tattooed on an arm or carved on a tree branch, the Savoyard knife is a never ending source of inspiration for our artists. The Opinel knife becomes an object of art.
