Haven Licensing will now represent Artestar and manage the licensing of its art, design and pop culture brands in Australia and New Zealand.
This new deal brings Artestar’s artists such as Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat and fashion designer Patricia Field to new markets.
The first line will feature Haring’s street art from the 1980s on apparel, accessories, homewares, and stationery.
“We are delighted to be working with Artestar,” says Yvonne King, director, Haven Licensing. “We’ve been contemplating a foray into art and design licensing for some time now, and breadth of the Artestar portfolio makes them a one stop shop for licensees and retailers looking to capitalize on the tremendous surge of interest in the genre. The time is right for us to introduce the brands into the ANZ market place.”
