hi-light by donna brady

GRAFFITI AS CONSUMER ART seems an odd combination but it actually works quite well with Donna Brady’s unique Hi-Light pendants, made from photos of her Brooklyn neighborhood. The names are appropriately urban (take a walk down Kent Street) and the textures unforgettably so: rusted metal walls and pitted concrete surfaces over smooth cylindrical shades make for gritty-meets-swank decor. There’s a raw, untamed beauty to graffiti in general–let’s hope these help to draw awareness to urban blight as much as they capitalize on it.
