The Idea of making Jewelry from the graffiti debris: The Graffitite
(The word is inspired by the American « Fordite », material resulting from paint buildup on the old Ford’s)
came from frequenting the most famous graffiti spots all across Europe.
I found out that by dint of being painted, repainted and overpainted the accumulations of layers were literally crushing down at some point.
I found the result, the Graffitite, really amazing and inspiring.
That’s how I started to make jewelry and Renk’art my little Street Art Corner and Gallery!
In the Future I’d like to start developing more collaborations with Street Art’s legend, so stay tuned!
“In French, Renk’art means « Date »… it’s a date with art!”
Born and raised in France, Marion Broodthuis Gravier grew up surrounded by contemporary art, thanks to a father who was an international art dealer. She quickly gets tired of the small world of Art, too close and disconnected from people.
Thinking that art is everyone’s right, and in response,
she has launched a Street Art Jewelry brand and an itinerant gallery, build an old Coca Cola cargo bike from the 90’s , so Art could come to people,
and meet them where they are, offering great pieces at an affordable price .
The selection is now more Focus on the Jewelry brand of course but you can still find my street art selections, such as Renk’Art, the colorful editions of monsters signed by Jojo Le Petit Prince, the originals canevas by Ereska or Cécile Hoodie’s tee shirt and others EXCLUSIVITY
Starting from 15€ to 500€, the gallery offers super soft prices for great pieces
so art stays accessible to everyone!
