Over the years, Dan Life has steadily made a name for himself by reinterpreting pop culture tropes into brilliant diamond pendants. In the past, the Chicago-born, Los Angeles-based artist went from flipping wine on eBay to working with Hebru Brantley and J Balvin on lustrous one-off creations.
Dan's latest endeavor sees a partnership with legendary graffiti artist, Kenny Scharf. Well-known as a pioneer of the New York street art movement of the 1980s, alongside Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Scharf's signature Tondo faces are recreated into four stunning crystal pendants. Each is made using 14k yellow or black gold plating on a .925 sterling silver chain, while all of the crystals are individually hand-set in clay.
Titled Crystal Rainbow Sparkle Guy, Crystal We’re Here, Crystal Fun’s Inside Too, and Crystal
Monostro, each pendant is limited to an edition of 200 and is priced at $2,100 USD. The pieces drop on July 8 at 12pm ET on Dan Life's website.
On the topic of editions, Yoon Hyup will release white-and-black Juggler figurines.
