Diem Chau was commissioned by Wieden + Kennedy to carve 66 crayons for this year’s Nike World Cup press kits!  Only 11 kits were created. 18 days of work. Little sleep. BIG inspiration!
About the Artist - Diem Chau combines common mediums and common means to create delicate vignettes of fleeting memory, gesture and form, resulting in works that combine egalitarian sensibility and minimalist restraint. Her work touches on the value of Storytelling, Myths and its ability to connect us to each other through cultural and humanistic similarities.
