Art Stars is a project initiated by Ralph Lauren in 2010, where 50 up and coming contemporary artists from around the world have been commissioned to create artwork on big stars made out of wooden frames and denim. We decorated a star measuring 150 x 150 cm, with a pattern based on our geometric patchworks from the Almänna Galleriet show. The star was exhibited in the Copenhagen fashion store Storm.

All the stars were later exhibited in London, late 2010, and auctioned of for charity.

In 2011 Hvass&Hannibal were chosen to be mentors in Art Stars Sessions, where students from art schools around the world competed to produce a star of their own.
