About this project
Hello Kickstarter community and welcome to the world of Mariscotti Art! Our goal with this project is to create awareness for the artwork of Contemporary Abstract artist Osvaldo Mariscotti. We intend to achieve that goal by creating and launching a collection of unique fashion accessories inspired by Mariscotti's distinctive work.
For the past 40 years, Mariscotti has been developing and perfecting a brand new and unique aesthetic based on shape and color which we believe should be shared with the world. This art is alive and as such deserves the chance to grow and become something more than a canvas on the wall.
I've been dealing Mariscotti's work for years and during that time I became more and more convinced of the huge potential that aesthetic had, and guess what, I'm not alone. For the last few months I've been touring Europe attending art exhibitions and prestigious award ceremonies. Since then I've been getting hundreds of requests from people inspired by Mariscotti's art to take the work further. Driven by this great interest and demand, I explored many options but finally decided on fashion and so this project was born.
Fashion was clearly the most natural choice since we not only wanted people to see the work, but also experience it and feel it. Some art was never meant to be confined within the walls of a gallery or museum. This is especially true in the case of Mariscotti whose work has already inspired so many and promises to inspire so many more. As one of the most fundamental ways of human expression, Art should be available to everyone. We realize that especially in the case of Contemporary Art this is rarely the case and so we propose a way for people to gain new insights into and appreciation for this kind of art. By making work available in "friendlier" formats such as fashion accessories, we also hope to narrow the gap between society and Contemporary Art.
The designs we are currently creating are drawn from Mariscotti's large collection of work. The funds we want to raise would allow us to create more designs and launch a full-blown collection of beautiful fashion accessories made up of pure silk, cashmere and Merino wool scarves, shawls and stoles. The fabrics are manufactured and printed in Great Britain under our direct supervision.
What your support means!
In addition to the scarf collection, the money we raise on Kickstarter will also let us fund the expansion of Mariscotti Art in the following ways:
- Offer a broader selection of sizes and fabrics, i.e. muslin, gauze
- Create prototypes for brand new products

Risks and challenges
Everything is uncertain in life, but the one thing you can be sure of is that if we get the money you will get the rewards of your choice. Even though some of the rewards are expected to be delivered in January 2015, we will aim to get everything to you by Christmas so that you can share the gift of Art with the whole family.
Once we get the scarves made, gift-wrapped and boxed, they will eventually become commercially available in early 2015, however Kickstarter backers will get theirs first.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
