Limited-edition Bicycle® X Smiley Collector’s edition deck of cards dials up the happiness and cool quotient with a fun, funky design that will help conjure up even more magical moments. From Moschino to Murikami; from DSquared to DC Comics, and from Bershka to Banksy, Smiley has inspired generations of artists, activists and dreamers. For the past 50 years, leading creatives and originators across the worlds of art, fashion and pop culture have subverted the Smiley in their creations.
This deck of cards was created in collaboration with both Smiley and André Saraiva who is a world-renowned graffiti artist, creative director and entrepreneur. He was born in Uppsala, Sweden and grew up in Paris, where he began his lifelong passion for graffiti, tagging his name all over the city’s walls. He soon created Mr. A, his alter ego, which quickly became his signature design and an iconic character in the art and fashion world. André has drawn his caricature over 300,000 times, on six continents. André’s works have been exhibited in museums, shows, and contemporary art galleries around the world. He has also collaborated with numerous brands, such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, L’Oreal and Billionaire Boys Club just to name a few. Now an established hotelier, restaurateur and nightlife pioneer, André has never put his spray can away.
