Purple Project

Purple Project

Purple Project is an art project, a collaboration between UK based illustrator/artist Petra Lunenburg and designer/photographer Baukje Bies, who is based in The Netherlands.

These two women found each other in the exceptional love they share for the artist formerly known as Prince (may he rest in peace). With this purple royalty in mind they created illustrations, photo’s and digital photo collages: “an ode to the musical legacy and style of the greatest artist of all time in this genre”. The first outing of the Purple Project collaboration is captured in 17 artworks on paper. (as seen above) You can follow the Purple Project on Instagram: @purpleproject_art, to see all the images they created. You can order the set of 17 cards, sized A5, by sending a message to: purple_project_art@outlook.com for only €39,99
