January 30, 2008 (RALEIGH, NC) — Clark Hipolito, the Raleigh artist who originally honed his skills at MTV, has created a hip ambience for Catch 22, a new clothing boutique on Raleigh’s trendy Glenwood South district, through his signature specialty painting effects.
Located at 322 Glenwood Avenue, Catch 22 features a turquoise wall emblazoned with gold script and eggplant walls where Hipolito free-handed scrollwork that pops behind the store’s collection of hand-picked collections from up-and-coming designers around the world.
The boutique is owned and operated by Heather Long who sees Catch 22 as “bridging the gap between Raleighwood and Hollywood.” The store carries some of her favorite styles for men and women as well as her own line of “super glam cocktail dresses.”
“I had some great inspiration working with Heather,” Hipolito said. “She has incredible design sense, so it was easy to bounce ideas back and forth and make things happen on the fly. She was so much fun to work with, and extremely easy going throughout the entire process.“
Catch 22 is also displaying some of Hipolito’s hand-painted woodgrain surfboards from his “Against The Grain” and “Surf du Jour” collections, which he creates through his new company ArtCo Surf.
Clark Hipolito is the principal of The Art Company, an interdisciplinary design firm specializing in various phases of interior design. The company has been consulting with private and commercial clients since 1994, and has both designed and decorated some of the trendiest destinations in Raleigh, including The Rat Pack, Ess Lounge at the Depot, Mosaic, and Five Star, Evoo and Margeaux’s.
