I just returned from Tokyo,
where my right hand Carl and I completed a 60′ mural and facade painting installation at the Stussy Shinjuku chapter store.
This project was part of my ongoing support for the worldwide release of the new Haze x Stussy S/S 2010 capsule collection,
which is already out in Japan, and drops here in the states and Europe next month…
all in all, it was a great week working together with the Stussy team in Tokyo,
painting inside the store every day, then finishing up the facade on a crane the last night before the opening event…
the level of support and enthusiasm we received from everyone during the whole process was tremendous,
so many thanks and much love to Michi, Shin, Sei, Brian, and everyone at Stussy JP who was part of making this project all that it could be.
and keeping it moving, next, we head out to Los Angeles to support Stussy again in a few weeks,
where we will be launching the capsule’s US release with a full scale exhibition of all the original framed artwork used in developing the collection,
as well as some installations and product displays, which will also include the upcoming Haze x Stussy x Pro Keds model sneaker.
This show and event will also be the first exhibition held in the ( amazing ) new Known Gallery space on Fairfax, opening on February 26th,
which is being developed and run by my old friend Casey / Eklips ( who is the driving force behind the 7th Letter Crew and more )
so I’m psyched to be able to work and build again with some of my old and favorite west coast peeps as part of this project too.
so without further ado,
here are some pics of the painting and installation,
plus a link to a video piece below that was shot there during the process by our peeps at : www.mediadefrag.jp
and stay tuned…
