Visitors to Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées were doing the Snoopy dance on May 12 over acclaimed contemporary artist André Saraiva x Mr. A’s tribute to legendary Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz. Fans were invited to meet Andre Saraiva and Snoopy during an Insta-worthy opening night party.
To launch the festivities on an appropriately artistic note, Galeries Lafayette Champs- Élysées hosted a family-friendly event from 4-8pm on the 12th featuring special guest appearances by Saraiva and his new BFF, Snoopy. The artist signed posters and do what he’s best known for: tagging! In this case, his canvas was his latest creation, a fanciful, larger-than-life interpretation of Joe Cool’s fabled dog house.
Known for his witty and imaginative works and his signature graffiti-style designs, Saraiva is one of seven elite contemporary artists participating in the Peanuts Global Artist Collective. The unprecedented worldwide initiative invited creators to blend their unique styles with the iconic world of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang.
