CONFETTISYSTEM is Nicholas Valite Andersen and Julie Ho, a duo working as artists, stylists, and designers. Their shared love of communal celebration and craft-making brought them together to create a new system in 2008.
CONFETTISYSTEM transforms simple materials like tissue paper, cardboard, silk, and mylar into interactive objects that create a point of focus, where a spontaneous collaboration with the viewer is sparked. The objects and installations occupy a space between the ephemeral and the permanent with a sense of nostalgia and lighthearted fun.
CONFETTISYSTEM has created installations and provided art direction for brands including Opening Ceremony, Pierre Hardy, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Lanvin, Lane Crawford, and J.Crew as well as performers Beyonce, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Beach House. CONFETTISYSTEM has also created custom work for clients like The NY Times, MoMA PS1, American Ballet Theatre, Mercedes Benz, Criteria, and Pop Magazine with Gagosian Gallery.
The duo have been exhibited in galleries and museums in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Japan, and Holland. CONFETTISYSTEM has been featured in The NY Times, New York Magazine, V Magazine, Interview Magazine, Teen Vogue, and Dwell Magazine, among other publications.
