Henri - Tom's Drags - Lion

Most artists always start with a mission in mind. For Tom Hoffmann, it was wanting to bring some brightness back into his friends’ lives following the sombre events of 11th September 2001. His creations were personal individual gifts, incorporating his love for detail. These tokens traded sadness and anger for humour and joy. Those who received these unique gifts responded with appreciation and enthusiasm so much so that Tom went on to start producing his “Drag” commercially.

Tom’s Drag are unique and stylishly designed objects for the home. The designer, Tom Hoffmann (1956-2012) travelled often and loved it. In his work we find influences from European and American pop art. They are reminiscent of Yellow Submarine, and also of the ornamentation in European, African and Asian popular culture. Tom combined these in his very own unique way, thus creating a frenzy of colours and joys of life. His work is “original” in the truest sense of the word!

 

Each piece is lovingly painted by hand down to its most insignificant detail, making it unique. So if you want to give something different this Christmas, why not opt for something witty, whimsical and weird, spanning all the colours of the rainbow.

Waiters, angels, alligators – nothing is off limits. The light-hearted charm of Tom’s Drag infuses anything and everything with tireless, playful and inexhaustible creativity. Roles and clichés are reinterpreted in surprising ways, often turned completely upside down.

 

Henri Luxury Boutique stocks a wide range of these wonderful creations in Malta. Pop into their outlets in Pjazza Tigne and Mdina to view the range of ornaments, candleholders, occasional furniture and more.

My personal favourites are the wall mirrors. Simply beautiful!
