The first major solo exhibition since 1999, Australian-born artist Marc Newson will showcase Transport at the legendary Gagosian Gallery in New York City next week. The showcase will also mark the premiere of Aquariva by Marc Newson, an updated rendition of the classic luxurary speedboat by iconic shipbuilder Riva of Italy. Though trained as an industrial designer and continue a substantial amount of contributions in the industry. It was Newson’s experimental creations and his foray into the gap the between functional art and idel designs which won him praises from both genres.
As a kid obsessed with designing and making things, post-war Italian design was a huge source of inspiration. I was amazed by the seamless ability of designers and industry to produce every conceivable type of industrial product, from furniture to automobiles. My own career has undoubtedly been influenced by the Italians’ impact on so many areas of design.
