Eley Kishimoto’s ‘Art Sail’ Takes to the Thames

It’s not just venerable statues that are getting tricked out in Olympic finery for the London Games. Boats are also getting into the act. Print wizards Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto of Eley Kishimoto designed this “Cam Chevron” sail for Team Great Britain. The black and white main, which dazzles the eye like a seafaring Bridget Riley canvas, took to the Thames yesterday afternoon on an Olympic Star class yacht skippered by John Gimson, a strong contender for Team GB in Rio come 2016. Also on board was real estate developer Michael Ross, sponsor of a “Fine Art on Sail,” a new initiative that will raise money for assorted sailing-associated nonprofits. “The striking repetitive zig-zag movement in the design aligns with a sailboat’s repetitive tacking between port and starboard,” said Ross of the Eley Kishimoto creation. Stay tuned for more art sails. The project has commissioned four top artists to design sails that will be revealed later this month in London and then make appearances at Art Basel in Miami and at the America’s Cup.
