2017 EDGE - Tuesday Bassen
LA Design Festival created the EDGE award to recognize emerging talent. In 2017, we are proud to celebrate three new recipients making a significant contribution to LA's design culture.
Meet Tuesday Bassen - an award-winning artist based in LA. Her colorful, whimsical style spans across a variety of projects, from illustrated wares in her online + Friend Mart shops, to clients like The New Yorker, Adidas, Urban Outfitters, and more.
The "tenacious as hell" artist famously made headlines (NY Mag, The Guardian, Nylon, and British Vogue, to name a few) in a David-and-Goliath battle against intellectual property infringement. She and Adam J. Kurtz created Shop Art Theft in an effort to bring awareness to egregious corporate plagiarism, while supporting the work of indie artists and designers like herself.
We're proud to celebrate Lauren's contribution to the local creative community by recognizing her with the 2017 EDGE award. She'll be joining fellow EDGE winners Lauren Halsey and Jihan Zencirli at the LA Design Festival Opening Night Party + Fundraiser on June 8th.
