Nashville is taking the art world to a new level with these awesome canine sculptures by creative talent Herb Williams. Williams’ new show, Call of Couture, opened at the legendary Rymer Gallery displaying 15 different breeds designed to mimic either an iconic fashion designer or a distinct style. Each doggie masterpiece has formed by using hundreds of thousands of Crayola crayons. The Call of Couture demonstrates how pure bred dogs have become a fashion statement and are considered the ultimate fashion accessory. You can check out more of Herb Williams’ work on his Facebook page.
Pure-bred canine companions have been displayed in paintings beginning in the 15th century.
You will find everything from a tall white poodle with a large black Chanel logo to a pudgy bulldog in the trademark Burberry pattern. While the greyhound resembles a rainbow of colors in the likeness of Coach, the doberman stands regal in his Louis Vuitton branded coat.
Herb Williams likes to think outside of the box. He states “My intent is to continue to seriously create art that looks at itself unseriously.”
