Macy's Flower Show 2012: "Brasil: Gardens in Paradise"

Meet Paolo! Paolo is the latest addition to the cast of characters jesGORDON created specifically for the Macy's Flower Show. This year's theme is "Brasil: Gardens in Paradise" and as always Jes brought her signature style which is a little country and a little bit rock and roll to the occasion.

Paolo's rockin' afro is made of orchid heads and tropical leaves. Sculptor Matt Mikas helped make Jes's vision for Paulo come alive. Matt gave Paolo his other notable features-- a smirk, yellow Ray-Ban sunglasses and of course his fabulous headphones displaying the Brazilian flag.

Take a look at Paolo's transformation ;)

Large screens, depicting Brazilian favelas in Rio, appear behind the gorgeous display of lush tropical plants and Paolo. The photograph was taken by Ana Maria Russo, a photographer who lives in Lisbon, Portugal.

Several weeks of work and planning paid off. Our installation at 4 in the morning on Saturday, March 31st was a success and Paolo was very well received. Thanks to our production manager, Arthur B., for planning everything within an inch of its life!
