Art meets Fashion or Women's Purses

Kaufman's ex-girlfriend a few years ago made the mistake or good fortune of leaving her $1,500 leather Gucci purse where Kaufman paints, and of course as accidents do happen paint did end up on the $1,500 Gucci purse, so Steve then painted the whole purse with images of Marilyn Monroe.

50 commissions later from images of Chanel perfume bottle, the owners name in a repeat pattern like a designer's label, & even images of American Express Platinum credit cards. The only artist to paint purses was Versace himself, Steve has say he enjoy mixing fashion with fine art, maybe one day these purses will be in Museums as Steve signs and numbers each purse 1/1 because every purse is a original just like their owners.
