Parisian artist Julien Berthier is known for his left field approach to art, including his most famous piece from 2007, the ‘Love Love yacht’ which saw a sailing yacht designed to appear as though its sinking bow first representing ‘lost hope and death.’ His most recent work is a perfect embodiment of this; it’s a result of a sketch Berthier did of designer Gerrit Rietveld’s famed ‘Red And Blue Chair’ using his left hand. He sent the drawings to a carpenter who brought the drawing to life in an actual replica.
