Art, the Deco Fox

As you might surmise by his posture before us today, Art is quite proud of the visual presentation he makes to all the vivacious little vixens down at the burrow. And well he should be, for he embodies a unique style of angular elegance and bold glamour that harkens from a much earlier era.

It was Art’s great-grandfather Antoni — a robust and well-read russet fox from Riga, Latvia — that first schooled young Art in the various prevailing design styles of the early 20th Century. Antoni, who had apprenticed in Barcelona, passed along the love of the decorative arts that he had developed throughout his own kit years. Growing up under Antoni’s tutelage in the family den, Art would raptly absorb images of Cubism, Futurism and Constructivism, as embodied by all the great artists, sculptors and architects of the ‘20s and ‘30s. His immersion in all things Deco was further aided by the rich collection of finely-honed structures throughout his hometown, which Art would fondly scan each night as the extended family hunted rats through the dark alleys and lanes.

Luckily for Art, Deco has since the early 1970s seen a resurgent revival among the decorative arts, fashion, jewelry, furniture and interiors. Many young professionals now find the crisp geometries, stately symmetries and unique colorways of Deco very appealing to their lifestyles and self-image. To capitalize on that growing trend, Art has recently acquired a trendy little lease space on Toronto’s bustling Yonge Street.

      This stylish fellow should market his persona- He would be the talk of the artworld's delight. Little did I know that all the doodling I have ever done (mostly in school notebooks) would actually look like this Deco Fox (minus his magnificent tail and nose). Thank you for sharing his history as well. A rare breed indeed!
