Great Wall 333

Métiers d'Art Collection is an exclusive digital artwork collection by Can Büyükberber, created in collaboration with the not-for-profit organisation Literary Arts Foundation. This project marries the creative genius of Can Büyükberber with the celebrated artistry of Montblanc pens.

Büyükberber has conceived of a series of digital works that reflect the aesthetic and mood of Montblanc's renowned limited edition writing instruments. The edition size of the artworks matches the edition sizes of the pens - and one pen from each series will be auctioned on Sedition along with Edition #1 of its related artwork by the end of 2022.

For the Métiers d'Art Collection, Can Büyükberber reimagines the central themes, exquisite materials and use of form employed by the master craftsmen of Montblanc's atelier, and transforms these multidisciplinary artefacts into sculptural digital installations, each surrounded by their own unique atmosphere and architectural “metaverse”.

Great Wall 333 pays homage to Ancient Chinese myths. Emblazoned in red - a popular colour in Chinese culture symbolizing fire, and referring to good luck, vitality and happiness - and yellow representing royalty and power, these two colours are dominant in Great Wall 333, captivating the viewer with nine entangled golden dragons looping at the center of the room. In Mandarin Chinese the number 9 is pronounced as "jiu" which also means "long-lasting" and the number is also strongly associated with the Chinese dragon, a symbol of magic and power. The work was also inspired from a handscroll painting Nine Dragons, created by Chinese artist Chen Rong in 1244.
