On the way to Barcelona, I opened the door to head out to the airport when, at my feet, was a small box addressed to me. Naturally, I couldn’t leave on my trip before opening my mail and satiating all curiosity. To my surprise, my friend Nils Dunkel sent me a copy of his first ever book, Supernice. It’s a visual collection of imagery from the voyage treader. He made pit stops in Venice and Nice. As a tribute to Sophie Calle, I took the book along with me to Barcelona and took it’s picture along the way. First, in front of the Sagrada Família, and then in a cave in Parc Güell. I left some of the photos in Canada, but I scanned one of them (on the left).
As it turns out, Nils Dunkel is the most talented artists I know. Plus, he’s killer at karaoke. If you weren’t to buy a copy of Supernice, you’d be sorely missing out. I was very impressed by the variety of art, and it was nice to have a friend accompany me on a trip to Spain. For more info and previews, go here. The project is backed by Marc Jacobs and Terence Koh, and to add to that shiny roster, myself. Nils also launched a fragrance titled Supersplash. I want that now.
