Huggsy Bouges Plate Edition by The Haas Brothers
Twin brothers Nikolai and Simon (b.1984; Austin, TX) works have spurned arbitrary artistic boundaries and hierarchies, creating a playful and provocative world that merges art, fashion, film, music, and design. Their work explores aesthetic themes related to nature, science fiction, sexuality, and psychedelia in materials that range from brass, porcelain, and fur, to highly technical resins and polyurethane.
The Artist Plate Project, launched in 2020 to benefit the Coalition for the Homeless, has partnered with over 98 world-renowned artists who have created limited-edition dinner plates produced by Prospect. The funds raised by the sale of plates will provide food, crisis services, housing and other critical aid to thousands of people experiencing homelessness and instability.
The Coalition for the Homeless is the nation’s oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless individuals and families. We believe that affordable housing, sufficient food, and the chance to work for a living wage are fundamental rights in a civilized society. Since our inception in 1981, the Coalition has worked through litigation, public education, and direct services to ensure that these goals are realized. Every day, our 11 frontline programs help more than 3,500 New Yorkers survive immediate crises and put them on the path to long-term stability.
