The creative chameleons comment on societal values of wealth and consumption through their mini sculptures floating in the center of a shadowbox. The famous and fashionable brand Chanel takes center stage in the artwork ‘Luxury Egg – Coco’ where a classy blonde bombshell pops out of a golden Chanel egg drinking champaign while donning her all-black Chanel outfit. Even without the logo, the iconic black bag with its golden chain and highly-recognizable diamond quilting is a timeless piece known as a signature of the brand. 

Eva takes close consideration for every single detail in her mini-sculptures. Down to the red nail polish, this character is emblematic of the Chanel woman. Understated and oozing elegance in her all-black attire, this character could step out of her golden egg and onto Lagerfeld’s runway. View more from Kunst Met Een R here.
