I am obsessed with candy—I often joke that Sour Patch Kids are my favorite food, and I’m not really joking. So when a friend DM-ed me about a new Sour Patch Kids artist, I had to learn more.
New Yorker Robyn Blair Davidson takes candy (not just Sour Patch Kids—bubble gum, Starburst, gummy bears, Fun Dip, Ring Pops, and tons of other nostalgic favorites), and turns it into whimsical works of art. And the Internet has noticed: OK! magazine dubbed her “the most in-demand artist of 2018,” and her social media star is rising. But the original art doesn’t exactly come cheaply—Davidson’s work, available to purchase on her site by robynblair, ranges from $1,200 to $3,600 depending on the sizes (16 inches by 24 inches all the way up to 36 inches by 48 inches).
Here’s some really great news for sweet tooths, though: Davidson, originally from Potomac, Maryland, has teamed up with Dormify for an exclusive print collaboration, which launches Monday. The same sugar rush, at about a tenth of the price ($145 for a framed 16-by-20 print). The collection is part of a larger Dormify partnership with ArtSugar, a charity-based art retailer, which will also feature work from Anna Panchenko and Katy Hirschfeld. Five percent of all of the proceeds will go to GirlsWhoCode.
We spoke to Davidson about her work and the new partnership with Dormify. You can find the full ArtSugar print collection on their site here.
