A model with a Sparkling Mickey at MixC Shenzhen Bay.
In celebration of Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary, Leblon-Delienne invited a range of renowned designers and artists including Dariel to reinterpret the figure of the well-loved cartoon character. Dariel’s lacquered resin Sparkling Mickey figurine is a tribute to the Pointilist movement in painting which explains all the points and dots. It delivers a sleek visual play with its mesmerizing speckled veneer. Shoppers can buy the figurines at the Drivepro store on the third floor of MixC Shenzhen Bay.
Dariel draws his creativity from the different worlds of design, fashion, gastronomy, visual arts and luxury. His design philosophy is driven by his passion for breaking traditional codes and clichés which creates a new language for each design.
