Kolodny’s Perspective: A Reverence for Creed’s Craftsmanship
Shawn Kolodny, expressing his admiration, states, “Creed is undoubtedly a brand that I revere for its craftsmanship, history, and values. Being an artist, I know how many years of dedication it takes to perfect your craft. This is where I feel a synergy with the House of Creed and the 7 generations of tailors and perfumers that have perfected time and time again the scents that we experience now.”
The collaboration between The House of Creed and Shawn Kolodny signifies a harmonious blend of artistry and craftsmanship. With Kolodny’s installations and the scented public sculpture, this creative partnership not only captivates the eyes but also engages the senses.
As the installations become an integral part of Miami Art Week, the celebration of this artistic fusion promises a sensory journey for all who encounter it.
