Style Epiphany Interview with David Grieco of Justice Bodan

July 14th, 2010 · Belts, Disney, Handbags, Jewelry, leather

Justice Bodan infuses elegant, timeless beauty with a modern edge.  The collection offers accessories that bring fine art to everyday life.  With stories as beautiful as the items themselves, Justice Bodan is a state of mind as much as it is a line of usable, wearable art.

Carried by Jennifer Aniston and featured in WWD, this is a brand for fashion and art enthusiasts to watch and collect.  The exotic combination of materials such as handcrafted bronze and the finest Italian leather gives the Justice Bodan customer the experience of true luxury.

I hope you enjoy this exclusive Style Epiphany interview, which delves into the creative mind of Justice Bodan’s David Grieco.

When did you discover that you were an artist?

I discovered I was an artist when I was really young, but never knew it was okay to pursue.  I kept much of my work from anyone for many years.

It was when I was playing football at Alabama University that I realized I was born to do something, and it was not football.  I would look around at these amazing athletes, and I wanted to be that good at something in my life.  I was so afraid to tell my dad that I wanted to stop playing football.  When I finally did, he told me that all he wanted for me was to be happy, and that’s what made him happy.

With that, I embarked on a wonderful journey.  Every day it fuels me to live for who I am and with full love.  I have been sculpting for over 17 years, but created Justice Bodan as a celebration of us all as one just five years ago.

What life experiences led to the creation of Justice Bodan?

Real life, travel, friends, an amazing wife and child, and wanting to share my work with more people.

I have been successful with fine art and I have wonderful collectors, but I love people and sharing life with them all.  Traveling with JB gets me out of the studio to fill my heart with life.  I want to connect people with my brand from all over the world and celebrate our commonalities and differences.  I just think people are awesome.

Which part of the process of creating items for your collection do you enjoy most?

All of it.  I love the stories and where they take me.  I love working with my hands and speaking with them–being able to create what I see in my head.  It is a lot of fun.

Which comes first, the story or the piece?

The story first because that begins to create the work and brings images to me.  Then I get to create the thought into clay.

What do you think draws people to Justice Bodan?

I think Justice Bodan is in all of us.  I created him as a character that does nothing but love, learn and celebrate.  There is no ego attached to him/her.  Justice Bodan is the heroic character that is in us all, and hopefully he is showing us that it is okay to believe in ourselves and celebrate who we are, and know that we all rock!

What is going on now at Justice Bodan, and what can we look forward to in the future?

Justice Bodan and Walt Disney Signature is going to be huge for the brand.  Walt Disney Signature has never done anything like this before.  I met the team in Japan (I was there having meetings with Isetan for JB) through my amazing cousin, Louis, who made the introduction.  The Walt Disney Signature team saw a wonderful fit with the JB stories and art, and let me create whatever I wanted–gave me full freedom.  We are launching soon.  The pieces are…very cool.
