LiMITED RELEASE - Kip & Co X Mirka Mora Collabaoration
April 20, 2022
It's no secret that the Not Plain Jane team love an Australian artist collaboration and our love for Kip and Co is no secret either, so it was our hearts were a flutter when we heard about this limited collaboration.
In celebration of their 10th birthday, the gang at Kip & Co have put together a limited collaboration featuring artworks from beloved Melbourne artist Mirka Mora.
Working with Mirka’s son William, and daughter-in-law Anna, who guided the Kip & Co team through this special collaboration, has resulted in a beautiful collection which allows you to bring a small piece of Mirka's insatiable joie de vivre and tenacious energy home with you.
At Not Plain Jane, we are truly loving the tea towels in this collection. Not only do these these beautiful French flax linen tea towels add a beautiful touch of colour to your kitchen, they can also be framed and used as artwork throughout your home. It's genius!
Born in Paris in 1928, the story of Mirka’s youth is one of survival. At 14 her family managed to escape a Nazi internment camp and emigrated to Melbourne.
In Melbourne, Mirka’s magic lit up a sleepy town. She had a magnetic and cosmopolitan sensibility that fuelled the bohemian subculture of the 50s and 60s. Together with her husband Georges, they started galleries and restaurants that became the beating heart of Melbourne’s cultural scene.
Mirka was a prolific artist, working for over 70 years across painting, works on paper, sculpture and many public commissions. But without doubt, the unspeakable horror of the Holocaust shaped Mirka and her art. She used her art to portray a mythical other-world, overflowing with joy, hope and resilience and full of enchanting wide-eyed angels, mythical creatures, animals and children. In doing so she proclaimed loudly her belief in the strength of humanity and reclaimed a stolen childhood.
