The Peanuts Global Artist Collective headed across the pond. To coincide with the good grief, Charlie Brown! Exhibition that took place at Somerset House, trend-setting retailer Browns collaborated with The Peanuts Global Artist Collective to create a curated selection of product that was available exclusively in the U.K. at Browns. Browns teamed up with four brands, including Corkcicle, Denik, HUF and Pintrill, using works from three of the artists – André Saraiva x Mr. A, Nina Chanel Abney, and FriendsWithYou – to create a collection of must-have lifestyle products ranging from tote bags to skateboards, water bottles and notepads. And the best part of it all? La-based artists FriendsWithYou created two public art installations that were on view in London. One was a blow-up of “Lil Cloudy Brown” that was housed in the entrance of Browns East, and the other was a set of three lightboxes that were located on the embankment entrance of Somerset House, featuring three of their Peanuts Global Artist Collective works.
