The Australian artist couple are among the world’s leading public artists and their creations have a clear message: the peaceful co-existence of humans and animals. Their works are at home around the globe and perhaps they will soon be part of your home, too. And at a very affordable price for a work of art. Together with Gillie and Marc, our head of design and co-owner Jürgen Reiter has developed a great collection of decorative objects for you. At an art event he and the artist couple discovered that they have a lot in common. KARE stands for cosmopolitanism and creativity, while the partly provocative art of Gillie and Marc makes an impact with its extraordinary design, representing a rebellious style which is far removed from the mainstream. Further common ground is a passion for cool art objects, sculptures and pictures which not only combine humour and food for thought but also create a decorative art gallery in the home.
Gillie and Marc’s most famous images and sculptures and at the same time their trademark are “Dogman” and “Rabbitgirl” – two figures that show the deep connection between the two artists, while at the same time representing two personalities with contrasting features. The art of the couple pays tribute above all to the importance of the co-existence of people and animals, the splendour of the natural world and the urgent need to preserve it – but also aims to make people smile and simply be fun.
In addition to their iconic Dogman & Rabbitgirl paintings & sculptures, the designer duo generate a lot of attention with their XL animal sculptures, which are constantly changing their location. Examples include the rhino trio “The Last Three” in Times Square and the figure of a gorilla near Fifth Avenue. The large, lifelike objects are made of bronze, resin, fibre glass, ceramics or stainless steel. Their art can be seen and admired in over 250 cities.
